   You hit the nail on the head.  MailScanner was not able to write to 
the "/var/spool/MailScanner/incoming/quarantine" directory as soon as I 
changed permissions it let the mail through with no issue. Now the 
reason the permissions got changed was due to my mailwatch install. It 
said to change the setting in "/etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf" to the 

Quarantine User =  root
Quarantine Group = apache

    When i looked the messages were not being written to that dir.  Any 
pointers as to how I should approach this?
