I suggest you set up Exchange to relay to your Unix box, rather than try and
make clients send directly via that box.

Subject: [exchangelist] Relocation of SMTP Service to a UNIX box

Hi all,

i run a network of about 1000 clients, i have a win2k server with exch 2k 
sp4, we also have a pix firewall to ward off unwanted traffic.

Now the business requires us to move the smtp service from the exchange box 
to a unix box infront of the firewall, hence all mails sent by clients 
destined for a domain outside is forwarded to the unix box and all mails 
from outside will be sent to the unix box and the unix box will forward the 
mails to the exchange server which sits behind the firewall.

Please can i use exchange to do this and if yes how can i achieve this with 

FREE pop-up blocking with the new MSN Toolbar - get it now!
