Spoofing MX records without querying DNS

So, I'm trying to test if my mail setting are correct and want to send a test email without actually updating DNS.

Is there a way to spoof the mx record for a domain without querying a DNS server?

Any ideas?

Maybe comment out the nameserver entries in /etc/resolv.conf and place the IP addresses your trying to test in /etc/hosts.
