Machines are cheap enough, wouldn't it be reasonable to throw in redundancy?
Unless having 2 machines adds unneccessary complexity to the setup.
We have triple redundancy on our incoming mail, on cheap hardware, even
though 1 server would more than handle our comparativelly pitiful incoming
Sometimes I don't even realize one of the external relays is broken for a
