I understand this, as I already do it for www and ssh. Postfix seems to
think it will have issues with NAT (unless specifically configured to know
about it) and I also want to set up voip with asterisk in the near future
and think it would also benefit from not having to go through NAT.

I don't have any issues at the moment with the current double NAT setup,
but I would like to bypass the ADSL router and have just one level of NAT
for my network, and a live public IP address on the gateway.
