    I'd like to set up a second server on another host which also runs cPanel to provide a secondary mail server for my domains. Im assuming I would have to add teh MX entries by hand in my BIND config but I'm not 100% sure how to do this without actually adding my domains to the DNS servers on each machine. (I will eventuall work out using both sets of DNS servers as a team, but for now email is an issue). I just went through 4 days of downtime which meant no email due to issues with my primary domain host. ANyway..COuld someone outline for me the steps to add a second mail server for backup?
