    I have 2 linux servers:

    Server A (Mail Server)
    Server B (Mail Filter)

    Is it possible to forward incoming emails from Server A to Server B to be scanned for spam/viruses and then send the emails back to Server A for distribution or is there an easier way?

    Server A is running Sendmail and Server B has postfix, amavisd, clamav and spamassassin.

    The more typical setup is to have the "Mail Filter" server recieve the mail first and than forward the mail to the "Mail server"

    I haven't tried yet, but I don't know why this shouldn't work.
    Instead of and for amavisd and Postfix you'd use the IP addresses of Server A and Server B.
