After reading http://members.lycos.nl/jupp/linux/mailproxy.html, I'm 
wondering if you need an MTA at all.  At first glance, it seems it will do 
what you're trying to do.  FWIW, I use netcat for testing TCP/IP 
applications and it has worked out quite well.  You may already have it in 
your Linux distro.
