I am thinking about doing something similar for users with MUA's, as 
during peak times sendmail/MD can take 5-10 seconds to send an email.  I 
was thinking about setting up another sendmail instance on another IP that 
just accepts mail from our MUA's, and then relays it through the 
sendmail/MD instance.

I know I would loose functionality like immediately rejecting bad 
recipients, a feature some MUA users like.  But assumed a bad rcpt bounce 
would be returned to the original sender, right?

Any other ideas, that aren't big ugly hacks?
