Manual MX for MX redirection.

A manual MX is an MX redirection that lets you bypass the domain's MX lookup via the Domain Name System (DNS). The manual redirect entries are appended in the /etc/manualmx file with the following format:
# grep example.com /etc/manualmx
example.com: external.mail.example.com
Going with the example above, even though my MX records point to mail.example.com, the server will skip the MX lookup and deliver mail for example.com to external.mail.example.com.
