I have a domain and mail server hosted at the ISP End with individual mail boxes.

I use Mdeamon to download/pop the mails from the ISP-mail server/mailbox and
distribute to clients on the lan.

My problem is when a user sends mails to local users, the mail does not reach the
ISP mail box. Instead relays only inside the LAN.

I want all mails..local and foreign to be sent to the ISP-mail server/mailbox.

Try configuring your ISP mail server as outgoing mail server.

Mails are going out to the ISP Mail server. The issue is
when a local user sends a mail to another local user, the mail is delivered
within the LAN and it doesnt reach the ISP mail server.
Basically I want to treat all mails as foreign mails...

Routing through ISP's mail server won't work if the local domain is registered on the mail server. It'll always stay local.The only way to route it to outside of the mail server is to have  outside your mail server on a secondary mail server where the mail is redirected to your first one.
