How do I direct pop and smtp to use my verizon broadband card and all other traffic to ethernet card?

Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I am working at a client site that blocks pop3 and smtp traffic on their network.  Is there a way that I can be connected to my Verizon broadband aircard and to the network at the client and direct all smtp and pop3 traffic to the aircard while all other traffic uses the ethernet connection?

(No credit card required)
- find out the IP addresses of your POP3 and SMTP Servers.
- find out your gateways of both connections (lets say for verizon and for network)
   > ipconfig /all
- write route scripts for pop3 and smtp servers :
   > route add <POP3IP> netmask
   > route add <SMTPIP> netmask

Then all the connection thropugh the SMTP server will pass from verizon network.
