If its too hard for them to setup the pop3 catch all, we can probably
put some mapping in place to smtp froward mail to their server. This is
more complex on our part so would prefer not to do it that way, but its
an option and will require not setup on their part other than make sure
their server does not accept mail for anyone other than our server.
