    i would like to have mails from server B be handled by server A. This is so that I don't need to maintain 2 instance of exim, mailscanner, spamassassin, RBL and related services on both server. Just maintaining it working excellently on one server will do. Also, server B would no have much mails anyway.

    What is the best way of doing this?

    I have tried changing MX record for domain on server B to point to server A but there are some problems. I could not send mails at all from server B. Let's say there is a webform in server B website where users key in enquiries and submit to create an email to relevant person but since server B have MX records in server A, the email would not go out. Perhaps there are more steps that I need to do?

    Is there a way where i just relay all mails from server B to server A?

    Anyone else is doing this sort of things? Let me know how you handle it. Thanks in advance.

    Go on, have a guess
    Do a search for exim smart router on the forum which should give you threads that discuss this.
