Openprotect has modified mailscanner pretty heavily to work with Qmail. You
might have to do some deep digging to find what has happened.
It might benefit to start over with one of the MTA's that Julian originally
started with (sendmail, postfix, or exim), or see if you can find any help
from the openprotect people. I think their list moved to google groups.

Does the version of Mailscanner that they have respond to a
 MailScanner --lint?


MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
