Networking -- use of two Internet connections for one server with round robin DNS -- web okay, but should I do mail this way too?
I have a client server, it is accessible via two separate Internet
I've managed to get it set up so that the single server can be accessed
fully via either Internet connection with some "interesting" routing
Now I know that the website can be serviced via either connection with a
couple of DNS entries (one for each public IP) and I'm pretty sure that
won't cause any problems.
What I am thinking of doing is making the two MX records both at the
same level number, 10, and having that do round robin as well (again,
just the one mail server, accessible via both connections). Does anyone
see any issues with this idea? Both public IPs in use will have rDNS
setup. My theory is that half the email will come in via one connection
and half via the other one. Outgoing email will just use one of the
Any ideas / comments / other things to consider?
