There's some rules in the MailScanner.conf that say whether or not to
spam scan certain hosts. The default is probably not to scan local host.
either that or the way your MTA is setup the 'post mailscanner' queue
(ie delivery) is the default queue for /usr/sbin/sendmail (or whatever
your MTA is).

Well I think that was really badly explained, if you need it clearer I
can try again, after I've finished my first coffee :-)
