    That isn't a smarthost.  That's a forwarding address.  The MTA delivers
    to example.com using its config, either smarthosting it through some
    specifically configured smarthost like myrelay.mydomain.com or doing MX
    lookups and delivering it itself.

yes, but smarthosts usually have a user/password associated, to prevent the world from relaying through the box. but it doesn't make sense to have different user/passwords for each sending user, no? Actually I'm not sure how such a config would look like. A multi user system might want to use a real mailer then, I guess.
