Is there any way to specify which hosts to send to for a particular domain?

Let's say we have a company, widgets.com. They have several mail servers, some of which have different rules for accepting mail: some require SSL/TLS, some don't.

tls-only.widgets.com = FIRST IN MX
tls-optional.widgets.com = NOT IN MX

The tls-optional server is not in the MX, but it is there and is accessible from the outside world.

How do I set up redirection so that all mail to widgets.com gets routed to tls-optional.widgets.com automatically?

I thought about this and it seems that the only way to kludge it would be to add a domain in the Administration Console, set up forwarding (if user not found on this domain, forward to somewhere else), and create no users for that domain (it will forward all).

Is there a better way to do this? What if I am doing a not-insignificant number of these redirects and don't want to add domains for each one? How do I do wildcards?

I will appreciate any replies. If these features exist then I would be very glad to know of them. If not, the addition of custom filters, forwarding rules, etc. will greatly add to the flexibility of this product.

This isn't a Kerio answer, but may address your problem.

Most firewall's have a re-write rule. For example, I could configure all outbound connections from the kerio server to the IP address of the remote SMTP server to be re-written to go the the prefered server's IP address.

FW1, IP Tables, Smoothwall, almost all decent firewalls can do this.

Does Kerio not have a smart host feature to address this? Our outbound SMTP server is not our Kerio server. Ours has smart hosts where we can do forced routing for cases like this. sendmail can do this also, for example.
