[nSLUG] How to throughly test an MX server before making it live

I am setting up a new MX server with the common trio of postfix,
amavisd with SA and clamav.  It isn't hard to test mail delivery
from local sendmail commands or from remote telnet to port 25,
but what I really want to test is how is the thing going to score
and tag spam compared to a production MX with slightly older
SA and amavis and perl modules.

I'd like to have a way to run a script from off site which sends
a bunch of messages through via a specified MX.  Much like
the test-messages work area of amavisd-new but with an
ability to control the MX.

Has anyone heard of such a QA method or script/tool?
