Multiple outgoing mail server possibility?

    Is it possible to have postfix set up to use an alternate outgoing server if an outgoing message fails for some reason?

    For example, if a user tries to send a message to an address, and the aol server replies that my servers ip address is blocked for some reason,can i set up postfix to resend the message through another server which will be configured as a relay?

    I usually monitor the mail queue and warning and error logs daily for any blocks, but it sometimes takes a couple of days for the providers at the receiving end to remove any blocks. I would like to set up an alternate path so that I can minimize any delays for my users.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas on this one.

    Additional info

    The situation I am trying to address is similar to the one described here

    Postfix - Send only rejected mail through smarthost - Server Fault

    The suggested solution seems a bit complex with having multiple postfix instances and queues. I also would not want to create some kind of workaround solution which would break anytime ISPConfig3 is updated.

    If there is no easy solution, I will just deal with any blocks as they occur on a case by case basis, and the users will just have to deal with it.

    Thanks. Looks like I got the block cleared up for now, but I will save this info for future use.
