I am trying to run MailScanner 4.84.5 on Debian with postfix and with Mailwatch, non root (because mail daemons should not run under root) 

I set up this config (part): 

Max Children = 2 
Run As User = postfix 
Run As Group = postfix 
Queue Scan Interval = 10 
Incoming Queue Dir = /var/spool/postfix/hold 
Outgoing Queue Dir = /var/spool/postfix/incoming 
Incoming Work Dir = /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming 
Quarantine Dir = /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine 
PID file = /var/run/MailScanner/ 
Restart Every = 14400 
MTA = postfix 
Sendmail = /usr/sbin/sendmail 
Sendmail2 = /usr/sbin/sendmail -DOUTGOING 
Incoming Work User = 
Incoming Work Group = mailwatch 
Incoming Work Permissions = 0660 
Quarantine User = 
Quarantine Group = mailwatch 
Quarantine Permissions = 0660 
etc. (I can send the whole config). 

where mailwatch is group containing postfix,clamav,www-data 

But I get this error message sometimes the batch starts procesing: 
Insecure dependency in open while running with -T switch at /usr/lib/perl/5.10/IO/ line 63. 

Is there somebody, who is succesfully running Mailscanner with postfix non root? 

Thank you.
