I think there is a SpamAssassin rule that checks for SMTP auth 
information in Received headers.
But I'm not 100% sure. I think you can force it to do it with the 
"trusted networks" settings. Take a look at "man 
Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf" for more information on trusted networks.

MailScanner doesn't currently do it on its own.
