Also, be careful that if both relays run GFI MailEssentials, your spam database 
on the SMTP gateways won't be the same (mail that is whitelisted on one server 
may be considered spam on another).

I suppose you could configure the IMC on 5.5 to use DNS for routing to a 
smarthost, but your internal DNS would need MX records for the 2 relay servers, 
and the Exchange servers would only be able to use internal DNS (which is 
really a good thing). Then the MX records it found would be weighted with 
priority, or equally weighted. I haven't done this internally myself, but I 
believe it would work.

Well, but...

 

Just kidding.

 

Would creating a second SMTP connector pointing at the second outbound relay 
work? (I am not that familiar with connectors, so not sure.)

 

If the outbound relay server was down, wouldn't you know it and if a lengthy 
problem, why not just change the smart host on Exchange?
