I looked at the original master.cf from Postfix 2.10.0.
[root originals]# grep -e qmgr -e pickup master.cf
pickup fifo n - n 60 1 pickup
qmgr fifo n - n 300 1 qmgr
#qmgr fifo n - n 300 1 oqmgr
Are you saying you believe Mailscanner changed the master.cf?
Also I have these:
[root originals]# ls -l /var/spool/postfix/public/
srw-rw-rw- 1 postfix postfix 0 Apr 17 13:56 cleanup
srw-rw-rw- 1 postfix postfix 0 Apr 17 13:56 flush
prw--w--w- 1 postfix postfix 0 Apr 17 15:10 pickup
prw--w--w- 1 postfix postfix 0 Apr 17 15:10 qmgr
srw-rw-rw- 1 postfix postfix 0 Apr 17 13:56 showq
