    I think this is only backup the mails not provide the mail service

    In this howto, the second (backup) mailserver gets all mail and forwards it back to the first mailserver, when it becomes available again. This is in most scenarios better then having 2 independant mailservers.

    @till / falko: is there an easy way to have an backupMX for all domains manage with ISPConfig on the primaryMX?

    I think the easiest way would be to copy over /etc/postfix/local-host-names to the backup MX (e.g. with rsync) and include it in the relay_domains parameter:
    relay_domains = $mydestination, /etc/postfix/local-host-names
    (might be a good idea to rename local-host-names to something different...)
