Have you looked at this option in mailscanner.conf? it does something
pretty close to what I think you're looking for, and may be close enough.

# Deliver messages with viruses removed to their original recipients
# if they came from a local address, or just delete them so no-one knows
# we have a virus outbreak on our site?
Deliver From Local Domains = yes

Otherwise you could pretty easily write a little script (called by
procmail) to grep for your domain name in the "From:" information in the
body of the postmaster warning message.
