    We have a physical Exchange 2010 (SBS2011) server with the following setup:

    mail.domain.nl pointing to our main WAN IP
    MX (PTR) Record that points mail.domain.nl to our main WAN IP

    I would like to do:
    mail2.domain.nl that points to main WAN IP of second internet connection
    add mail2.domain.nl to our MX (PTR) Record with lower priority

    What I would like to acchieve is that the email can be sent out when we have downtime on our main internet connection.

    How should this be setup?
    In EMC:
    Organisational Configuration --> Hub Transport --> Tab: Remote Domains
    add second line for same domain (domain.nl)
    Then I will see after change
    1) Name: domain.nl / Domain: mail.domain.com --> Already excisting
    2) Name: domain.nl / Domain: mail2.domain.com --> to be added
    Finally contact our ISP to add second IP to SMTP server and Add second IP with lower priority to MX (PTR) Record?

    I have not done this kind of implementation before, therefore I would like to get some advice first.
