You need this in your spam.assassin.prefs.conf file

# For spam and notspam bins
bayes_ignore_header X-MailScanner
bayes_ignore_header X-MailScanner-SpamCheck
bayes_ignore_header X-MailScanner-SpamScore
bayes_ignore_header X-MailScanner-Information

You should obviously change the header names to whatever you customised
them to be (you did customise them, didn't you...)
