The situation has changed a bit. I am looking into a way to direct 
specific email addresses to a specific server. Say I have 2 exim4 
servers, both of which can receive email for our domain. One server 
(Server1) only accepts one set of email addresses, lets say all emails 
starting with a "k", take my email address as an example.

Server1 needs to direct all emails but the "k" one to Server2, Server2 
needs to direct all "k" emails to Server1. Both servers are added in the 
MX records. Well actually they are added in postini's configuration. In 
a load balancing kind of way.

I think hubbed_hosts in my example above wouldn't work as it requires 
domains. My email addresses all have the same domain.

As a side note, for a while now I am using hobbed_hosts to correct a dns 
issue with a remote smtp server. I found out the hard way that using 
tabs after the "domain:" entry will break it.

Thank you,
