yeah...think should work. I have shutdown the primary mailserver and the
message has gone into the secondary mail server. Think the message should be
in the qmiail queue now. And, I have make the primary mailserver up again,
but I am still waiting for the message from secondary mail server. So, is
there any command to flush or force the secondary mail server message from
the qmail queue?
Or any configuration file to customize it?
