        I'm sorry but you'll need to be a bit more specific. I don't understand what the problem/question is.

          We need more info on this but from what i can gather you are having problems getting to mail.abc.com and it is falling back to mail2.abc.com.

          What are your DNS records like for your MX records??

          Typically you have a fall back server set with a lower priority than the primary. I.E.

          mail.abc.com mx preference = 10 mail exchanger = IP Address of mail server

          mail2.abc.com mx preference = 20 mail exchanger = IP Address of fall back server.

          Use NSLookup to check these records. This may help

          NSLookup

          Please also give us more info on the exact nature of your problem. The more we know the easier it is to help.
