For starters why are you using /mnt/ramdisk? You can just leave it at
/var/spool/MailScanner/incoming and mount that directory with tmpfs, not
a fixed ramdisk or anything nasty like that.
I suspect that's at least part of the source of your trouble.
It's my predecessor's design. Ad it was due to disk IO issues. The machines are just desktop pc's. Not my choice . I have no say in the hardware we use. So I'm sticking with the design for now.
I dont see why the location should be the issue. It is configurable in the MailScanner.conf file.
I have checked the permission etc and can't see any reason for the error.
