MultiServerSetup -> Email Routing

I'm running ISPConfig on multiple servers. Is there a way to use "Email Routing", to redirect outgoing mails of my web-server, to my mail server?

Yes, thats possible. You can route emails to any server you like. But normally you just set the MX records for all domains so that they point to the mailserver, so it will handle the emails for all domain. The only mails that get send directly by the webserver are e.g. php web forms.

The MX-Record points to my mailserver. The only problem are webforms you already mentioned. For security reason I don't want to install postfix on my web/ftp-server.

I guess I need to select the webserver? Do I need to point all domains to the mailserver manually?

Thx for your help

You can disable mail function ( clients still can use free scripts to send an e-mail using other mail servers ) or only change options in php.ini so PHP will use typed login, password and mail server host to send e-mails.

As far as I know, I can't set smtp-auth information in the php.ini.
