You probably have the old MS package Ubuntu distributes. Try:

# dpkg -l mailscanner

If you get a match try this to show the files in the package:

# dpkg -L mailscanner

If you installed a current version of MS yourself you should
definitely remove the old one to avoid confusion and other problems.

# dpkg -r mailscanner
