Hi Celso,

Cisco firewalls do not support PBR (Policy Based Routing). Technically, what you want to achieve is impossible since you dont have specific destinations. But if you have the IP addresses of your destinations (which you cant for smtp or www traffic), following is the workaround.

Following config will redirect mail traffic to outside and rest of the traffic including web to dmz1.

access-list smtp_nat_outbound permit ip insideipsubnet insidenetmask any eq smtp

nat (inside) 1 access-list smtp_nat_outbound

global (outside) 1 interface

nat (inside) 2 0 0

global (dmz1) 2 interface

route outside mailserver1ip rtr1ip

route outside mailserver2ip rtr1ip

route outside mailserver3ip rtr1ip

route dmz1 rtr2ip
