Your exaust isn't necessarily going to rot from the oustide in.
The inside has rotted.

A muffler is designed to take the pulse of the explosions of the motor and let them escape thru the tailpipe slower than they entered.

The inlet and outlet pipe contained within the chamber have hundreds of small holes. The reason the muffler works is becasue it allows the air to expand within the chamber before entering the small holes of the outlet pipe.
