If these are virtual machines (uml, xen, vmware, whatever) then the
host could do IP NAT so that traffic _looks_ like it's coming from the
host (or another of the virtual machines).  If they're physically
seperate boxes then you need to arrange for a smart-host type setup
and have mail forwarding through that.
