    Hi, I have a second server I've bought for backup.. how would I go about setting it up as a secondary mailserver for all the accounts on my other server? (Besides the DNS.. I know how to set up the mx entries, and /etc/remotehosts)

    Anywyas.. yeah how would I go about doing that?

    Go on, have a guess
    All you need to is to setup the MX records appropriately and then on the backup server add the domains that you want to relay for into /etc/secondarymx

    There isn't a WHM module for that correct? It's a manual edit?

    It is a manual edit of the file. If you want to quickly add all the domains from one server to the backup server you can base /etc/secondarymx on the backup server, on /etc/localdomains on the main server, if you want to.
