Seems to me you're already there. The POP3 server doesn't send mail, it only stores it. Email sent from a PC with, say, Eudora or Pegasus or whatever doesn't even touch the AS/400 POP3 server—it should just go straight out. Now, email from the AS/400 itself (are you using Office or JustMail?) needs some entries for SMTP, I think. This part is not really clear to me, yet. You might look into the TCP/IP Configuration and Reference.

OTOH, it's possible to embed destinations in the message. There're some particulars on this redirection facility in the TCP/IP Configuration and Reference.

AFAIK, you need to have a default route to anyt address set up on the AS/400—I won't swear to this, but it seemed to be the shortcut way that made our stuff work for the outside Internet.

Let us know what helps—I know I want to set up something similar at our sites.
