Are there any legitimate outside mail servers?

If a mail server accepts mail from anywhere and relays it then it is probably 
listed in ORBS and MAPS and mail sent to it won't get very far.

The only exception is people who do the "if POP request has come from an IP 
in the last 10 minutes then allow mail relaying" thing.  That number is so 
low that they could be made exceptions to the redirection rule on a 
case-by-case basis.
