sendmail mailertable

Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone know if it is possible to add multiple smtp host in the sendmail's mailertable to route mail for a domain bast on priorities. Kinda like MX records on a zone file.

so if I have in my zone file...



in the mailertable file is it possible to do something like below but be able it assign a priority like in the zone file? (with priority assigned) (with priority assigned)

Is this possible?

Thank you in advance for you help.

Not to my knowledge. You can either specify the SMART_HOST property to send all mail through the specified SMTP gateway, or if this is not set, MX records are used to send mail.


gateway, smtp
