the funnier way is to modify master.cf so it doesn't call smtpd for
connections over port 25, but rather something, say a shell script, who
does forward a copy to the port 25 of the other server (eg using netcat)
and to smtpd, sort of
$(postconf | grep program_directory)
tee $tmpf | $program_directory/smtpd
(cat $tmpf | nc $otherserver -p 25) && rm $tmpf
