We have a suspected spam which the email internet header shows the mail comes from relay.dotsterhost.com to our email gateway.

Is there a way to check the rating of this domain?

"relay.dotsterhost.com" probably means that it comes from a web site that is hosted by 'dotster.com'.  They provide domain registration and web hosting.  You would need a little more info.  Is there a specific web site or email address (other than dotester) in the headers?
