That just jarred a thought.  Couldn't you point ourserver.org to the ftp
server IP, but then set the mx record for ourserver.org to the mail
server IP?  This should allow for two IP's to the same domain right?  I
think that would work.  That shouldn't require a change on the clients
configuration and should work internally and externally.  Or will that
screw up POP and SMTP even though incoming mail would find its way?  Of
course if everyone is using webmail that problem would be solved.
Unless of course they access webmail with ourserver.org which would take
them to the ftp box, but then a apache redirect could be set up on that
box to bounce over to the mail machine.  

Just some more thoughts.
