Add a ruleset to the MailScanner.conf option "Scan Messages" so that it 
doesn't scan messages from

Scan Message = %rules-dir%/scan.messages.rules

and the scan.messages.rules file contains the following..

From:       no
FromOrTo: Default       yes

and then MS won't scan any messages from it's own computer.
