Hello Forum users,

We have a multi-node cluster of 6 servers spread around the world.

The 'master' sits in The Hague (The Netherlands)

Something happened to the node in kenia (company.or.ke/zimbranai.company.or.ke), it can no longer be reached. So the domains on the kenia server have been migrated to google apps.

Now the world can mail to company.or.ke and they receive mails. But the rest of the cluster (company.nl) cannot send mail to company.or.ke. The DNS is set correctly on
company.nl to see the new MX records. But I need to know what I must configure, so the cluster knows how to use the correct relay.

I do not want to jeopardize the correct functioning of the cluster, so I need your advice.

>>> mail to @company.or.ke should be treated the same as mail to domains outside the cluster (in the example above @testdomain.tk) and not be replayed to zimbranai.company.or.ke.

possible solutions: change /etc/hosts change the ip address of zimbranai.company.or.ke to that of smarthost
OR
remove all accounts for company.or.ke and remove the server from the web interface



Please advice on the issue
