Use ispconfig as a backup MX?

    Hello,
    I would like to setup a backup mx service on my ispconfig 3.2 server. I have read through my manual and have concluded that the way to do this would be the following.
    configure email routing
    Domain = exampledomain.com
    type= smtp
    No MX lookup = unchecked
    Destination = mail.exampledomain.com
    sort by = 5
    active = checked

    configure Relay recipients
    Relay recipient = @exampledomain.com
    active = checked

    This assumes also that my dns mx Auxiliary Info records are set correctly so that this ispconfig server has a higher AI than the primary mail server at “mail. exampledomain.com”
    so is this the right way to go about it?

    Cheers

    Yes, that setup should work.

    hi

    i have tried exactly what the first poster (vwpete) has written but the server doesn't accept the mails for the backup server (the backup server is NOT managed by ispconfig). i get an
    554 5.7.1 XXXX Client host rejected: Access denied
    do i need to add the domain also in the "Emails Accounts" -> "Domain" part?

    haven't found an explaniation in the ISPConfig 3 Manual (Version 1.3)
