Re: Postfix and Dovecot on different Server

1-2) Better to place Antispam/Antivirus gateway and Mail server together in DMZ, you can make a 2 servers - one will be real one and another can be MX backup server.
Another scenario: Make MX backup server like Antispam/Antivirus gateway in DMZ just to relaying all emails to the real second Mail server in LAN
