Evening all, been far too long since I have posted (Been stupidly  
busy :-( )

I would suggest you want to check your Delivery method option at the  
bottom MailScanner.conf and make sure it is batch and not queue.  
Setting it to queue would invoke this behaviour. Changing the queue  
runner settings should not be required. The queue running is called  
by Postfix when each process finishes to advise the next to run. The  
300 second delay is merely to catch anything that 'got left behind'.
