in relaydomains I had a line:
and in main.cf I included his domain in the relay_domains= option.
I'm also listed in DNS as a secondary MX, 10 being the delivered to server and mine was set to 50.
If his machine was ever down, I would queue up messages until his machine came back online, then I could either flush my queue manually or wait long enough and the messages would be sent from me to him.
MX 10 hismailserver.hisdomain.com.
MX 50 mymailserver.mydomain.com.
For SMTP I had it configured in ASSP to accept mail for other domains (his).
Is this clear as mud?
I want to be able to queue mail for another domain in the event that the primary MX host is unavailable.
