Balancing outgoing SMTP relay

2007-01-17 Thread freebsd
Hi I have a simple question but googling does not lead to a valid/usable answer. I need to load balance OUTGOING emails. I have serveral smart hosts. I need my internal SMTP server to send mail using ALL of the smart hosts together, making some kind of load balancing (no need for wheighted one).

This (multiple A records) works for me, at least approximately. Both Bind and MS DNS will round robin when multiple A records exist for the same hostname. What is your setup? FreeBSD 6.2 with Sendmail (initially) and now postfix. MS DNS with round robin (and TTL set to 0 on the records).
