Have you changed where MailScanner looks for messages (change to
postfix, path, etc. in the MailScanner.conf)? This seems to be the
only thing you don't mention anything about.
Also running on FreeBSD here ... I havent got any problems. However
... I don't run mine in a jail, that seems to be the only diff.

And, I did try a lot of different variations of what should be configured (according help text in MailScanner.conf and google searching).
