In MailScanner version 4.x you can combine several actions, one of which
is forward. I can not tell you, if the forwarded message is untouched
concerning its X-MailScanner headers, but I don't think so. As message
has passed all MailScanner checks prior to the forwarding action, it
probably has the MailScanner additions to the header. I don't see a
problem to forward mails like these to razor.
