Can a router act as an smtp proxy ??

Hello all,

I have a problem with an HP Digital Sender. By design, this device needs a direct link to an smtp server for its emailing services. Instead we have one that is several thousands of miles away from the nearest smtp server and in a different routed network and is not working well at all (slow and unreliable).

So I was wondering if it was possible to use the local router as a trasparent LAN intermediary smtp server (proxy) for the Digital Sender. Would that be possible ?

Thank you in advance.

No. I'd knock up a small Linux box with sendmail myself.
