To have a Received: header that looks as if the mail was
submitted via SMTP, you need to submit the mail via SMTP.
As a workaround, you can edit the master.cf "pickup" entry to
resubmit mail via SMTP.
pickup ... pickup
and doesn't SpamAssassin recognize locally-submitted mail?
Surely you're not the first person wanting to whitelist local
mail. It seems better to address this issue in SA rather than
adding hacks to your postfix config.
