This is not easily done with version 3, but it can be done easily in 4.

If using version 4, then setup a spam blacklist with
Is Definitely Spam = /etc/MailScanner/rules/spam.blacklist.rules
in your MailScanner.conf. Then in the spam.blacklist.rules file, put
From:   *@*   yes
FromOrTo:       default no
