Q: SMTP redirect to exchange over SSL

I have some services that carry sensitive data and have options to email through SMTP the only problem is our Exchange server is off site and the SMTP port is not encrypted. Legally this is not an option.

I've been looking around for something like a smart host that will allow me to re-route the emails from smtp to our Exchange server. We connect to our off site exchange server through http with SSL encryption. Any suggestions?

I can think of a couple of options -

- put in a mail relay that supports TLS and enable TLS on your Exchange server for the specific domain -

- create a point-to-point vpn connection between sites, may require extra hardware/software

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately there are 2 issues I should have brought up in the original post.
First, the services I have don't support TLS and second, the exchange server is a 3rd party server.

My plan is to setup a small VM with a SMTP server that has the ability to redirect mail to our 3rd party exchange server that is offsite. I have been looking for something that can do that but I have yet to find anything.
