I tend to use external testing services, which perform a variety of tests.

One reputable open-relay tester can be found at

        http://www.abuse.net/relay.html

If you want to be a little more daring, you can use ordb.net's relay-tester to
poke your server and see if it's closed.  It does a variety of tests, and then
emails you the results of the tests.

For more information, see

        http://www.ordb.net/submit/

The downside to this is that there is a danger that if you *have* an open
relay, it'll be listed in ORDB until it tests clean, and there are delays
before the tests take place.  So consider this course of action only after
you've used abuse.net's tester.  :)
