As said ... neither... Or if you do make it writable to postfix, just
do it "temporarily, that is to say:
make it writable to postfix (via a chmod)
start MailScanner so that it creates the directories SA wants
revert the chmod change, so that it isn't wratable to postfix.
... Or look into doing what I suggested in the other mail;-).
