Hi Manuel,

it's a bit complicated to guess your enviroment, but if you use Postfix
together with MailScanner
the mails schould be queue-files and placed in the in MailScanner.conf
defined hold-queue-directory.
MailScanner will watch that directory an start processing.
I think I would prefer to receive the mails with Mailscanner, check them
and forward them to Server A or B.

Mit freundlichen Gruessen
