Hi there,

Thanks to Nicolas Figaro for his information. Apparently sendmail does
not have this failover function but using a third party tool like bind
can help.

"sendmail doesn't know how to do this, but setting mx entries in your
dns can help.

Ask your dns administrator for this config, or grab bind at"
