Hello everyone. I noticed something that happened over the weekend when I was migrating a Smartermail installation from one server to another. Prior to the migration, I set up one of my other Smartermail servers as a backup MX for my primary server that I was migrating. Since my primary server is a Smartermail server, I enabled Smartermail Gateway Mode on the backup MX. I set it to use Web Service as the user verification type.I noticed that when I took my primary server down and tested sending to it, I received bounces stating 550 - no such user here. I believe this happened because since my primary server was down, the user verification couldn't happen, therefore, the messages bounced. Am I correct in this assumption? If yes, can someone tell me a way around this besides using no verification? Also, if I'm correct in my assumption, what is the point/value of Web Service verification if it doesn't work if the primary server is down? Thanks!
