MTA/Perl script for relaying only to Exchange-users

No mail is bounced when the backend server is unavailable. Wiith
milter-ahead, I use it with the backup-mx switch. If the backend mail
server (be it exchange or any other) is unavailable for any reason, mail
will be accepted and good mail queued for later delivery. The domain mail
would still be received on the filtering server, although all addresses
would be then accepted and processed normally. You'd not be able to receive
email as a client, but that would be a problem with the Exchange server to
be resolved. With this setup, no 5xx series errors are returned by the
filtering server then the backend server is unavailable.
