    On my server, this directory is owned by mailnull:mail does yours have the wrong owner, perhaps?

    In fact, the following may well help:

    chown -R mailnull:mail /var/spool/exim

    Also, /var/spool/exim/input is chmod 750, as are the other directories in /var/spool/exim/

    Adding pro rebuilt the exim conf files, therefor no longer referencing the MailScanner queue directory - follow the mailscanner install docs posted on cpanelplus.com(?) and just do the changes to the exim conf files etc. Worked for me :)
