With Postfix, change this line in /etc/ :

defer_transports = local, smtp, relay, virtual


defer_transports = local, virtual

Done. Outgoing/relayed e-mail is no more scanned (as a nice side effect, 
this also stops customers using your mail exchanger as secondary MX 
wondering why some of their e-mail gets scanned).

I don't know about other MTAs, but I'm sure there are solutions, too 
(there is *always* a solution :-)
