Assuming i do this, this means this is acting as a total mail server,Yes, WSMTPEX can be used to send all mail in a mailbox to the second SMTP host on any port.
with a POP mailbox for each domain, that said could i then use
WSMTPEX.EXE to then look for the files and forward those to the "real"
server behind the firewall, this would negate the need to use POP by
the real server to pull the emails....
Having said that, wouldWSMTPex sends mail with it's own built-in mailer but the receiving domain is specifed using the [<IP address>], i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org.
WSMTPEX.EXE use MercuryE to send the emails out as a process, and if so
how long will it try before it fails (and i assume means the mail sits
in the "badmail" folder?
I may need to "re-think" this as i dontIf you are just using the second one as a backup MX host this will work pretty well using the POP3 pull.
want 2 mail "servers" running, just means bumping mail to each stop
while it waits for collection.....
