Unless there are other 'mail*none' like entries that trump that one,
MailScanner with it's Syslog Facility = mail directive should be logging
to /var/log/maillog.

If not, perhaps as was suggested earlier in this thread there is a
permissions or SELinux issue preventing MailScanner's Run As User:Run As
Group from writing this file.
