Is there anyway I can use the router (or something) and make cgpro not forward any mail destined for Earthlink? In other words, all Earthlink mail would be sent as normal from CGPro's SMTP service?

My theory here is while I'm waiting for our Barracuda to be whitelisted, I can change the IP that our mail is coming from for earthlink only. This would at least restore our customers communication with Earthlink customers.
