    Sorry if this has been asked / answered before but all the threads I find seem to either go off on a tangent or simply don't provide enough information.

    I have two cPanel servers, let's say and

    I want to be the backup mail server for I just want it to queue mail until comes back online.

    How do I set this up?

    Hello :)

    cPanel currently supports clustering for DNS purposes only. There is support to host your databases on a remote MySQL server, however beyond that, there are no native options that allow for email redundancy. You can setup a remote mail server, update the MX records for your domain names, and email is then handled on that remote mail server. However, note that customers will need to manage/create their email accounts on the remote mail server, and there's no integration with the existing cPanel server.

    Thank you.
