What about `ls -ld /var/run/clamav/ /var/run/`

What is the setting for Incoming Work Group in your MailScanner config,
i.e. `ms-peek 'Incoming Work Group' /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf`?

I suspect from the fact the `MailScanner --lint` says

MailScanner setting UID to  (89)

but nothing about

MailScanner setting GID

that it's unset. It should be

Incoming Work Group = mtagroup
