    Multiple Mail Servers, One Domain, No Sub-Domains

    Hi All,

    I have a bit of a problem that i need some advice on.

    I have got 5 mail servers, two are in the USA (,, two are in the UK (, and the other is in Germany (

    Even the mail servers located in the same country are in different data centres.

    I need them all to serve, and somehow, when a mail is sent to a user [email protected] it automatically gets routed to the right server in the right country.

    The only way i have thought of doing it so far is to install a server responsible for accepting all mail, and then routing it to the right server. The downside to this is the fact that if that server went down it would bring the whole service down. Also it would generate a lot of extra traffic.

    Other than that, the only other way i can think of, would be for the users to have subdomained email addresses like [email protected]

    Any Ideas.....

    For the first idea, you could have multiple MX receivers, so if one goes down you would have others.

    Or you can have two-three most busiest servers receive mail for all 5 servers, including two that they would then route to.

    I would do it with subdomains.
