      Hi All,

      I have just setup a backup MX

      My DNS entries are

      10 mail.domain.com
      20 mail2.domain.com

      My main.cf on the mail2 is as follows

      relay_domains = domain.com, $mydestination
      relay_recipient_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/relay_recipients

      I'm now testing out the testing out taking down postfix on the
      mail.domain.com and it do get queued on the 2nd, but i see on mail.log
      that mail2 tries to connect to itself as well
      Oct 31 18:16:32 fs2 postfix/smtp[7557]: connect to
      mail.domain.com[xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]:25: Connection refused
      Oct 31 18:16:32 fs2 postfix/smtpd[7551]: disconnect from
      snt0-omc2-s7.snt0.hotmail.com[65.55.90.82]
      Oct 31 18:16:53 fs2 postfix/smtp[7557]: connect to
      mail2.domain.com[xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]:25: Connection timed out
      Oct 31 18:16:53 fs2 postfix/smtp[7557]: 466AB26C0114:
      to=<user@...>, relay=none, delay=23, delays=1.9/0.01/21/0,
      dsn=4.4.1, status=deferred (connect to
      mail2.domain.com[xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]:25: Connection timed out)

      Is this a normal behaviour?
