[olug] Clear-Text Proxies

I have an odd situation maybe you can shed light on.

We have port 25 filtered out at the router-level (our IT's response to
when we got hit by NetSky).  This is a pain when you create products
that can send email and you want to test them out.  I have one machine
(Linux, of course) that has permission to send mail but many other
machines that I would like to use to send mail

This is what I would like to do -- send mail to a non-used port on the
local machine and have that automagically forwarded to the Linux (i.e.
trusted) box.  I know about ssh tunnels, but I can't connect to port
25 on my linux box.  I know about stunnel, but the data needs to be
encrypted before it gets to stunnel, so I need to run something that
encrypts it before it get to stunnel.

But I don't need encryption -- all this stuff is behind a firewall.  I
just want all data from one port to be automatically sent to another. 
Does anyone know of a piece of software that will do this?  Does
anyone have a better idea?
