As noted in my prior reply, files are backed up in ms_upgrade/ in your
home directory. There should be a
ms_upgrade/saved.pppp/etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf.original with
your original MailScanner.conf.

What is ownership and permissions on /var/spool/MailScanner/incoming?

What do you get from

ms-peek incomingworkpermissions /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf


ms-peek incomingworkgroup /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf


groups clamav        (or whatever the clamd user is)
