Yes - run the following as the same user that MailScanner runs as:
sa-learn -p /path/to/spam.assassin.prefs.conf -spam <message>
"sa-learn --help" for all the options. Just remember to always use your
MailScanner spamassassin preferences file :)

Not specifically, but using spamassassin 3.04 + my custom rules
(files.grayonline.id.au) I get a score of 21.8...high scoring spam.

See the attached script. I have it in /root/bin on my mail gateways which run
sendmail so it's based on a standard sendmail+MailScanner directory structure
and assumes you "quarantine as queue files" (MailScanner.conf). The gist of
1. Find the quarantined message
2. copy the QUEUE files from the quarantine folder to the outgoing mail queue.
3. Force a queue run to deliver outgoing mail.
Hope this all helps :)
