Interesting idea, but I am not sure how it works - so is your configuration
On the lan, the default gateway is the netgear box (10.0.10.200) and the mail
server is a separate box on the lan (10.0.10.100). All machines on my
network have 10.0.10.200 as the default gateway.
Should I ifconfig on the mail server 10.0.10.100 to add the additional ip
address - in which case, do I need to do something with route on the other
machines to ensure that packets for the new "external" ip address route via
the 10.0.10.100 interface to ensure it gets picked up?
