I don't know if you can do that without modifying some code. What we are
doing is using port forwarding to forward port 25 to a host on our
internal network, but that forwards all traffic to port 25 of that IP
address, not just mail for a certain domain, and it also doesn't
translate usernames.

Anyways, even if you do forward it like that, you won't save any
bandwidth, only a little disk space maybe.

¿Why can't you just change the MX to point to the other server?
