At http://www.transproxy.nlc.net.au/ there's something called Transproxy.  
It runs on FreeBSD or Linux and passes HTTP requests to a port that you
specify on another host.  If you ran Transproxy on your mail server, and
convinced an HTTP daemon on your Web server that it was really running on
your mail server, it might appear as though both the HTTP and SMTP servers
are on the same machine.
