How to setup 2 SMTP virtual servers

Hi,

Could someone tell me how to setup 2 SMTP virtual server:

This is what I am looking to achieve.

I have setup an SMTP gateway to relay traffic to and from our exchange 2003 server.  I want to use 2 SMTP virtual servers so SMTP port 25 traffic is received by the first server, this server will then forward to the second server which will then forward on to the exchange server.  I have setup the 2 virtual servers but I need to know the configuration and how to go about it; I understand that the 2nd virtual server must listen on a separate port than the first but I am unsure how to do this and to confirm that traffic leaving the 2nd virtual is using the correct port 25 so the exchange server will pickup and process the traffic.

The reason for this is I will be binding 2 separate products to the 2 virtual servers.

Hope this makes sense....

This is not going to work, because you need to send and receive email on different ports. How are you going to get the traffic from VS 1 to VS 2, if VS 1 is on port 25 and VS2 is on 2525. You would need to have two separate servers - one for each product, so that each server can have an inbound and outbound port.
