Question

I have GMS set up to send all mail entering my server destined for non local domains on to another server. For security I would also like to be able to specify a secondary server. How can I do this?

Answer

When setting up your rules you can specify multiple servers under the "Post Server" section of the rule. These multiple servers must be separated by a comma.

An example of such a would be:

Target Address:       *
Deliver to:           mail.dom1.com,  mail.dom2.com
Port Number:          25
Retry every  minutes: 12
Account:              (blank)
Password:             (blank)
