You want to add the action "deliver" to that line as well, or the 
original recipient will not get their copy of the message.

Did you ask MailScanner to reload its config after making the change?
"service MailScanner reload" will work on quite a few platforms, 
otherwise try "/etc/init.d/MailScanner reload".

And also try doing the command
     MailScanner --lint
to see what that says about your configuration.

And also look in your /var/log/maillog to see what MailScanner is 
logging when it starts up, there may be some error messages in there.
