Could you explain a little bit more as to what you need? I'll ask a 
question or two so I can clarify what I think you want to do.

You have an existing scanning machine where domain1.com lives, is that 

You want domain2.com to have its inbound e-mail sent to this box and 
have it delivered onto another mailserver by IP address, is that correct?

If you could answer that, I'll see what might work for you.
