Postfix outgoing only


I am new to this so excuse the stupid question.

I want to configure a postfix server for outgoing mail only, I also want it always available, my question is can I configure two postfix boxes identical and use HAProxy or something like that to share the load, my thoughts are that as incoming is not a requirement then mailboxes don't matter so having two boxes configured the same shouldn't have any impact on each other.

Most postfix installations will handle outgoing email automatically with the default config..

Outgoing only.. no mailboxes.. HA configuration.. what ya setting up a spamming server ?
