You need to supply more information.

What mail server and AV solution are you using?

MailScanner places the following in the header of sender notifications:

X-MailScanner: generated

When the mail gets bounced (due to spoofed addresses or whatever reason) it is recognized by MailScanner to avoid looping conditions.

If you still want to eliminate the notification, edit your /etc/MailScanner.conf file. Look for the line

Notify Senders = yes

and change it to

Notify Senders = no
