What you can do is make a ruleset that bypasses Spam tests for messages
coming from the server,  You could whitelist it instead.

As long as auto-replies don't contain attachments or HTML it shouldn't
be caught the security checks of MailScanner.

Hope this answers your question, but for sure you should test it before
putting it in production, like anything.
