    This is probably a stupid idea. Please be gentle

    I have had issues with internet connectivity, people digging up the road etc. Got cut off for 4 days recently. I had the following thought;

    Purchase another cheap connection with fixed I.P. and point MX20 record at it. Then if MX10 gets cut off I can just swap the gateways across to reconnect.

    Thoughts?

    you would be alot better off doing this (or similar) and then swapping your ISP,
    Or a gateway that can handle dual wans.

    We use GFI MAX Mail for email continuity. We get tethering included with our mobile phones contract so can connect that way. It’s pretty cheap too.

    Dual WAN router would be best.
    A second MX record is going to recieve email – I am now of the opinion that the “cost” part of the MX record is largely redundant. Although my preference is to use a service/server in the cloud and bring email in that way. Then it doesn’t matter how the connection is made.

    This looks like a good service at a good price!
    Lots of our customers use Postini for a similar reason (although this provides mail washing too), albeit at a higher price!
