The problem probably will recur. Mailscanner creates the yyyymmdd
directories each day, but for some reason wasn't able to last night and
probably won't be able to tonight for the same reason.

Normally, the directory and subordinates are created/written by
MailScanner's 'Run As User' which needs read, write and search
permission on /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/. This will be the user
that owns the /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/* directories. If it has
permission, it could be a SELinux issue.
