I have a mandate to put a relay in my DMZ. Mail comes from the net to the
relay and is placed in a queue for the inside (I'm still having problems
putting the messages in a queue... don't have my mouth set right yet).
The mail server on the inside at some frequency (cron) polls the mail
relay in the DMZ for any waiting messages. It's getting messages out of
the mail relay in the DMZ that I want the opposite of rmail(8) for.
net message -> firewall pass through -> dmz -> mail relay -> queue for inside
inside -> mail server -> firewall -> dmz -> mail relay -> regurgitate all waiting messages
