Re: Secondary Mail Server



First, you need to tell that new machine that it needs to accept mail for 
the same domains, and that it should forward it to the primary mail 
server, when available.

Second, you need to set up a second MX record in your DNS zone, with a 
higher number than the primary MX, so that the world knows where to try to 
send mail when the primary MX is down.
