I'm not certain, but I think "Notices From" only is effective for
notices sent by /usr/sbin/ms-msg-alert.

If you look in MailScanner's reports directory for your language(s)
(default /usr/share/MailScanner/reports/en) you'll see it contains files
named languages.conf and languages.conf.strings. You could try editing
the definition of PostmasterName in those files.
