Huh? I seemed to have read about a SAME target which allowed you to
duplicate and resend packets to a different IP address. I believe it
performs exactly what this guy wants: to be able to deliver multiple
e-mails to different servers. The only drawback, AFAICE, is that it
requires multiple rules for multiple e-mail servers; however, AFAIK, this
multiple-delivery SMTP server you describe could fix that dynamically.....
