  • Exchange as Store & Forward

    Hi all, i would like to setup my exchange server 2007 to act as a store and forward server in the event that one of my other exchange servers are down temporarily. Is this possible?

    It can be done, but I wouldn't recommend it.
    By using a second server in the MX records you will lose the benefits of recipient filtering, because the second server (your store and forward server) would receive the email first. Furthermore a second server will get more than its fair share of spam, as spammers actively target additional servers in the MX records.

    Are you looking for something that is always in place, or just put in place when there is an extended problem?

    Simon.
