If you just want to see that, why not set yourself/another account you
use as moderated, and watch your logs for that: the mail will get to
the list, but won't go beyond the checks, unless you otherwise chose.

Or have I missed something?

For anything else, I'd suggest having a test list, based on the
configs you've defined: I think it was this thread that Mark pointed
out two withlist possible-deployments for extracting config for
list-foo, and importing into list-baa. (I can't be arsed checking,
right now (it was within the last two weeks-ish, anyhow).)

  in Strasbourg? Minister, it's like having the House of Commons in 
  Swindon and the Civil Service in Kettering.''
