Backup MX

Enable SMTP (or SMTP Profile) to be used as backup MX. It just spools mails and sends it to external mailservers. Would be nice to have a per domain settings how long a mail should remain in spool until it gets sent back and what are the retry intervalls to send to a external host.

        Ok, so we need the time in spool and retry intervals exposed in the UI. I would personally like to see full mail bagging support. Keep all email for x hours or days. That way in case a problem occurs on the inside mail server(s) at least there will be a way to re-lease a bounced message or any email that was not routed during the internal outage. Would add a layer of continuity in the Sophos UTM that I have seen in other UTM products.

        This is how it works now except that the time in spool and retry intervals only can be set at the command line.
