    I have an older ISPCONFIG 2 server that will be coming offline soon and I know that email is not compatible with the new ISPCONFIG 3 box I plan to replace it with. After I replace the server I would like to still be able to get to the old mail. How can I setup a LAN ISPCOFIG 3 box to spoof the real IP of the old ISPCONFIG server? or better yet if I change the real IP of the old server to a LAN non-broadcast address then resolve with an ISPCONFIG 3 local server that should work right?

    How do I configure this?

    Should I:

    1. Reconfigure my old ISPCONFIG 2 mail server for a non-broadcast address.

    2. Setup an ISPCONFIG 3 box on a non-broadcast IP to resolve the old ISPCONFIG 2 server domain name to the new non-broadcast IP?

    That should work to get mail right? Providing that I am not also connected to the net where a real name is.

    Thanks in advance for any replies.
