What creates the quarantine folder each day.

We have been running 2 MailScanner servers for the past 8 months without any
trouble. Over the past week we have been experiencing trouble with the
inbound mailq piling up. As best I can tell, at midnight each night some
process creates the folder /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/<current date>.
If the folder does not exist then the MailScanner process all show as
<Defunct> and the queue builds up. I manually create the folder and set the
proper ownership and the MailScanner processes start to process the mailq.
We are running CentOs 5.3 with MailScanner 4.75.11 with Postfix MTA.
If I could figure out what creates this folder each day I may be able to
solve the issue. I suspect that it probably is permissions stopping it from
being created but I have not found anything in any log.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
