In this case the client is an SMTP server, and the queue essentially gets
passed to the primary mail exchanger when it comes "on-line". The inside
(primary MX) mail server knows what to do for user whereas the DMZ
(secondary MX) does not, the queue on the remote (DMZ host) is processed,
and delivery is accomplished for local users on the inside smtp server... I
Sorry if this is not clear... (Did I mention I did this a few years ago...)
Not to mention what a great job the RFC does of explaining it. <G>
AND I COULD BE TOTALLY WRONG.
