Default Mail Filter Gateway Setup

I have 2 linux servers:

Server A (Mail Server)
Server B (Mail Filter)

Is it possible to forward incoming emails from Server A to Server B to be scanned for spam/viruses and then send the emails back to Server A for distribution or is there an easier way?

Server A is running Sendmail and Server B has postfix, amavisd, clamav and spamassassin.

Thanks.
D.

The more typical setup is to have the "Mail Filter" server recieve the mail first and than forward the mail to the "Mail server"

I haven't tried yet, but I don't know why this shouldn't work.
Instead of 127.0.0.1:10024 and 127.0.0.1:10025 for amavisd and Postfix you'd use the IP addresses of Server A and Server B.
