Permissions Issue ?

I think your postfix's home directory is /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming.

You need to point it somewhere else such as /var/spool/postfix (but make 
sure you create /var/spool/postfix correctly first).
Your razor installation is writing ~/.razor/razor-agent.log in the 
MailScanner incoming work area, and it's creating it with tight 
permissions. It shouldn't be in there at all.
