But why? This message is there for a good reason. If one of your MTAs is
taking the message, the sender must think the message has reached you.
If it is urgent a few hours can make a difference. But as Leif has
pointed out: Would it not be simpler to change the intervals in which
your secondary MX writes those mails?
