No. milter-sender does NOT read the message content. Its a pre-DATA 
milter acting on the client IP, HELO/EHLO, MAIL FROM: and RCPT TO: of 
the SMTP transaction. An upcoming release will have a new CLI for the 
core test that could be scripted to do something like you suggest. 
However, I see little utility in testing the information in other 
Received: headers as these headers cannot be trusted.

The next release will be 1.4 due out late this week I hope.
