Re: Redirecting mail (Re: Throttling mail)

Ray,

Take a look at IOS server load balancing.  You create a virtual server
with your public IP address and bind 1 or more real servers to this
"serverfarm".

The nice thing about IOS SLB is that it is part of the IOS image in native
mode on the 65xx and the 72xx series.  It runs on a couple of other
platforms but you would need to search CCO to find out which ones.
