backup mx drops mail
Problem reported by Richard Frank - 9/12/2019 at 9:24 AM

I am testing with our backup mx but it doesn't hold on to mail.
It accepts mail where it's in the mx list
10 mail.soko.nl
20 fallback.soko.nl

it tested sending mail to it and have the firewall closed on the mail.soko.nl for the backup mx so it can't deliver
retry timer is like 5, 10.15, 30, 60, 120, 240, 480, 960, 1440, 1440 so that's for days

still this is in the log

When the main mx is open for trafic from the fallback it nicely delivers the mail

but when main mx is unreachable it doesn't take long for the mail is dropped.

what to check?

(both servers v17)
