I don't see where this is a MailScanner issue at all. The issue appears 
to be that when you add the configuration items for delivery via, mail to outbound at is still relayed via, but with SASL settings per

smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtp_sasl_password_maps = 

I think this would be regardless of the source of this mail and is 
probably due to the transport mapping     smtp:[]

Why do you have that? What if you remove it?
