This could work, but you'll need to be very careful. Much of the useful
information is in the mail headers, so you'd really need to use the 'forward
as attachment' feature of the MUA so transport the mail as received.
I point this out because most Outlook / Outlook Express clients will only
forward you the body text of the mail (I could be wrong here...), and even
then with "----- Forwarded Message --------" prepended.. - it would also have
your local user in the From: address.
You'd probably end up alienating your LAN as 'spam' :)
Like I say, it's possible if you're careful and do some rewriting, but POP was
just not designed for this kind of solution....
