Thanks for your reply Jay,

On average, how much email sitting  on your postfix incoming queue ?
I am currently using MailScanner-4.61.7-2 & postfix-2.3.2-2.

I dont see any changes between these version of postfix / mailscanner 
when it comes to processing incoming queue,
and  I dont see any reason for current mailscanner/postfix will fix this.

Anyway .. I will upgrade postfix + Mailscanner to latest version, and I 
will post an update.
