Re: relaying denied



So for those entries (with higher and lower MX) in the DNS setup to work
correctly, I would need to configure /etc/mail/relay-domains and
/etc/mail/mailertable and setup mailboxes for the users on Y to allow mail
to be picked up by the lower priority MX in case something is wrong with
the primary MX, otherwise the lower priority entry of the MX record does
not do anything -- is this correct?
