In Maya simply go to the attibute of the object you don't want to recieve shadows and turn it off.

Thanks for your answer, but thats not what i meant.
It must receive shadows from other objects.

Under Rendering menu set, go to Lighting/Shading > Break Shadow Links

It "kind of" works... experiment with it yourself.

Remember to set the shadow/light linking also in the renderglobals or the shadow linking will not work!
