Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Ugh.
For now, there is only one mailserver that the system needs to talk to - our own internal Exchange server. In fact, I may keep it that way in the long run, as the only people who will get notifications will be instructors.

As this is a "beta" project, I just want something quick 'n dirty to hold together until I know what the heck I'm doing.
When somebody asks you to trade your freedoms for security, it isn't your security they're talking about.
New Why can't you use the Exchange box as a forwarder?
If so, setup is really easy.
New There might be the heady wiff of politics.
No details, but suffice to say getting changes in firewall policy on our end is nigh impossible, and a problem as well on the other side.

OTOH, if somebody can point me to an easy "accept mail only from localhost, and forward to single destination" script, I'll try that.

New For Courier.
Courier by default only accepts mail from localhost, so no configuration needed there - look in /etc/courier/smptaccess if you're curious.

To make it send all mail on to one host for forwarding, put the following line into /etc/courier/esmtproutes:
:[target IP]

man courier has more information about /etc/courier/esmtproutes.

"Insert crowbar. Apply force."
New Barry's mostly right.
First of all, many MTAs provide a sendmail binary for sending mail. So it doesn't have to be actual SendMail.

Secondly, if the machine can contact a working Internet-aware DNS and has a default route out through your firewall - i.e. you could browse the 'net from it - then most any MTA can be dropped in and it will automatically find the right host and delivery mail a-okay. There might be a wrinkle if SMTP outbound is not permitted. In that case, you should drop your Exchange admins a line and ask about letting it forward SMTP for you. Then you don't need a working DNS, either.
