Hi Folks,
Does anyone know the best way for disaster recovery MScanner?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Easiest way is to setup 2 or more gateways with equal MX records where the
total number of gateways - 1 will easily handle all of the load.

Secondary Gateway(s) are synchronized manually using a combination of ssh /
rsync /keychains after configuration changes are made to a primary gateway. 

With this configuration it's lose a gateway at 1:00 AM - fix it the next
morning because email will still be delivered.
