Bingo! Yes, I did enable that postfix option because of (http://www.postfix.org/postconf.5.html#enable_long_queue_ids):

And that helped me numerous times in logfile analysis. Thus, I am very much hesitant to revert that option!

No, if I am not mistaken: they *are* unique!

I do not use that software. But I would like to stick to "enable_long_queue_ids = yes". Thus, I would rather prefer an option in MailScanner.conf that would deal with this option in postfixÄ main.cf instead! (BTW: http://www.postfix.org/postconf.5.html#enable_long_queue_ids might help in making that regex more specific.)
With kind regards,
