If you are using a recent version of (the real) sendmail, then locally
generated mail will go via on its way to your local mailer, so
will get scanned before your local mailer gets hold of it. MailScanner
doesn't involve itself in the actual delivery process at all, sendmail is
already very good at doing that.
