I will look into those modules and procmail. However, if I understand correctly the modules must be intsalled on the machine that is hosting muy domain? Is it correct to say that is the case? Or is it possible to set up a random domain somehow and create an email adress such as test at randomlikedomain.net and begin testing?

WRT Mail::Audit, or any Perl modules, are you familiar with local::lib? 
(That's no typo, it's one of the few non-pragma CPAN modules that's all 
in lowercase.)  It provides a way to install modules when you don't have 
root on a host.

I find the perldoc for local::lib to be a little confusing, but try this 
tutorial for a walk-through of what it can do for you:
