Instead, I want a POP3 proxy server integrated with SMTP, that could prevent the messages internal to Allentown to cross the internet link. I'd like the proxy server to keep the local messages right there in Allentown.

Does someone know a product like that?

There have been past conversations on the list about doing that with vpopmail on both ends. Here's the general gist:

Location A has their POP mailboxes, and aliases to forward mail for users at location B to [EMAIL PROTECTED] Location B has their POP mailboxes, and aliases to forward mail for users at location A to [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Both servers have domain.com in their rcpthosts, virtualdomains and users/assign files. Location A has loca.domain.com as an alias domain, and Location B has locb.domain.com as an alias domain (to domain.com).

Users configure their email client to pick up mail as [EMAIL PROTECTED], but use [EMAIL PROTECTED] as their email address in the From header.

In your case, you'd keep New York as your MX 0, and it would forward mail to Allentown as needed. People at the Allentown office who sent mail to each other, would have their mail stay on their local (locb) server. Mail to New York and any other Internet location will be quickly queued on the locb server. You might even be able to configure traffic priority on your dialup link to throttle smtp traffic over the dialup link to give preference to http (and other) traffic.
