There is an smtpproxy script, but I'm not sure if this is the sort of
situation it was designed for.  Another SB user wrote an SMTP proxy which
performs the necessary checks at SMTP transfer time, rejecting the message
if it scores as spam, then calling the real SMTP server if it passes that
test.  That sounds like something you could try.  Search the list archives
for the past few weeks.
