No. This rule was created because so many idiot "mail administrators", 
including some which use MailScanner, still send "you sent a virus" 
messages to the faked senders, sometimes they send even the virus "back". 
And since many seem to use "mailscanner@" it hits on that. Furthermore, 
there were viruses spread with faked bounce mails of "mailscanner@" 
origin. More or less the only ham this rule hits are Julian's 
announcements ;-)
