    I have a client that wants me to setup a couple domains to use as a backup mx for their exchange server. Basicaly my server would collect mail for them in the event of an outage and forward the messages to their server when it came back up.

    Does anyone know how to do this with plesk/qmail? is it possible?

    Just a small note that caught me out on this at one time.

    You shouldnt add additional domains to rcpthosts as this file on occasion gets rebuilt by plesk and if you havent got mailservices enabled for that particular domain in the control panel you will find it being removed.

    You should instead add additional domains to morercpthosts (create if you need too) which plesk will not touch.
