Sure but you might be able to do the same thing with WSMTPEx without the second instance.
The program WSMTPEx.exe (SMTPEX.NLM for Netware) and this a separate program that takes mail for a email account and forwards it to any port and any hostname/IP address. I use this with my domains to forward the mail to a Linux system (must use high ports as non-root) and to a second instance of Mercury/32 running on my system (can't share port 25) Here's a sample of the ini file I use for forwarding all mail to Mercury/32 running on Ubuntu and Wine.
# You can rename this tool, but name of following section must remain [WSMTPEx]
# TCP port, on which SMTP server listens
# Number of seconds to delay between searches for emails
# Folder, under which is most of user's mailboxes
# Users mail address domain part
# When user name start with "DM:", WSMTPEx will try to find SMTP envelope address in mail file
This takes all the mail in the domain account "UBUNTO" and sends it to port 8025 on
192.168.1.4 to be received by MercuryS. The directory BADMAIL I have specified
must exist. You can run multiple instances of this tool and and it can be run as a
service. If run as a service and running multiple instances the name of the program
should be changed. I use WSE-UBUNTO to rename the program and ini file for this
