      Hi,

      Recently i have configured backup Mail server. tested
      by disconnecting primary mail server, mails are qued
      in backup mail server, so its working fine.

      Invalid mails which are rejected by primary mail
      server are queuing in backup mail server, backup mail
      server pushes to primary mail server.

      How to discard this invalid mails from secondary mail
      server queue. ( i have entered valid mail id in access
      file, still im finding lot of invalid mails in queue).

      Any suggestion to fix this issue is appreciable.

      Thnx&Rgds,
      Ramesh.

      ... You must validate recipients on the backup server (either copy the list of users or use sql/ldap to access this list). If you can t, then remove the backup

        You must validate recipients on the backup server (either copy the list
        of users or use sql/ldap to access this list).

        If you can't, then remove the backup server. discarding mail is not
        acceptable (bouncing is worst). People do mistype addresses sometimes.
