Try this:

find /var/spool/MailScanner -type d -exec chmod 0775 {} \;
find /var/spool/MailScanner -type f -exec chmod 0660 {} \;

If it clears, then you should checks the permissions your configs.

I know this has been around for a while and I have made the change to use the internal TNEF but lately I am getting more and more messages that are hanging up in the processing database..  Has anyone found a way to stop this from happening ?
