It would really help if you could post the configuration files. On the postfix
side, doing a: 'postconf -n' will produce the needed output. Post that here
with all the relevant mailscanner settings. As always, using the latest
versions of both programs is highly recommended. There have been some changes
in Postfix from ver. 2.3.x to 2.4.x and it would behoove you to study up on
them. Don't go the ver. 2.5.x route as it is still a beta.

Also, please post your logs. They are invaluable in these situations.
