Wow, that's overkill ;-) If I setup a different machine for outgoing mail I 
don't need to route to the MS machine at all, I can just send out right-away. 
This is indeed a possible solution and I already thought about it. But we like 
to distribute load and it also means adding all the users which would be 
allowed to authenticate to that machine as well and to tell all of them 
changing the mail-out server. But it's a possible solution, I agree :-)
