Running Postfix with MailScanner is not recommended due to the unsafe
way in which MS manipulates Postfix queue files (dangerously). Expect
bad things to happen.

Don't quote me on this, but in my master.cf I just have a user as part
of the user= argument, with no group. Try omitting the group, and
running with just user=mailman. *AFAIK* user= doesn't need the
':<group>' part.

Hope this helps,
