Not sure if this has been resolved or not, but....

I used to get this also. If I recall, the problem was in the init 
script. Julian put out a better copy that seemed to fix it, and I 
thought he put it in the latest releases.

You might want to check and see if there's an MailScanner.rpmnew in your 
init directory if you're using a redhat type system.
