My service provider configured to deliver all messages to with default MX priority to our site.
Have tested with single pmg and it work fine. Now have requested the service provider to setup a test environment
and configured Proxmox mail gateway cluster as per the pictures below and set to deliver all messages to pmg1 & pmg2
with default MX 10 priority. But it doesn't seem to work.

Or should I maintain in the dns/mx records? I'm using hmailserver as mail server.


Should I change "Default Relay" to Relay Domains is ""

I would appreciate your comments and suggestions.

Thank you

From the pictures - I'd say no:
* the default relay is where PMG sends e-mails for its Relay Domains, after processing (the downstream server) - nothing changed there as far as I understand
