Incoming Queue Dir = /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/*

I'm using Exim as mailer and when removing the "*" at the final, then
MailScanner does not detect any new messages in the queue.

Trying to use a configuration file containing the 2 exim directories
(input, msglog).

Incoming Queue Dir = /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/exim.queue.conf


This configuration works well.

Last try, using the exim input directory as queue dir
Incoming Queue Dir = /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/input

This setting also works, but I'm not sure if exim's msglog is cleaned up

So for now I have at least one correct working configuration.

Thanks & regards
