What kind of insane idea is that? Eliminate the middleman and send
directyl! Exchange is a piss-poor piece of junk. I mean that thing
can't even speak ESMTP properly and has not proper queue management 

Angel Says:
The reason I was going to do this, is because I don't really want to
have two DNS servers on the same subnet, and email being sent by a
machine with local DNS, is going to send faster that a machine that has
to wait for DNS queries to be answered.
