MailScanner is unable to create folder in
/var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/DAILY_DATE_WISE_FOLDER, today I created
20110803 folder manually and allowed ownership and mode to 770, and
MailScanner started working properly.

if not Selinux then permissions:

for RHEL/Fedora/Centos:

chown -R postfix:postfix /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming chown -R
postfix:apache /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine

or whatever user you're running postfix/apache under.
