What's wrong with a connector? Use the smart host option to point to the mail server at the opposing domain ( use the internal address available down the VPN ) and specify just the domain in question so only relevant mail goes down the link.

Can you explain what the problem with SMTP is? There could be other ways around your issue if it is a port restriction, binding issue, security problem or conflict with smtp on the mail server. If it's a VPN the traffic is presumably via the internet, so presume you have this for security.

You can use X.400, but will wish you never started.

X.400 is for backwards compatibility. Exchange 2003 was designed with SMTP as the primary delivery mechanism, and as such most things are geared towards this, from addresses to protocol implementation.
