Problems using two WAN-Interfaces (Policy Based Routing) on ASTARO ASG120

Following scenario:

On our Astaro ASG120 we've got these Interface-Configuration:

ETH0 = Internal Network
ETH1 is the default internet connection. We receive SMTP-Mails over the fixed ip and forward them to our "internal" Exchange Server.
ETH2 is a dial up adsl connection that we use for web surfing.

The problem is, how can i achieve that http and ftp traffic (after they have passed the web filter/proxy) uses the fast Internet Connection on ETH2. I tried to create Policy Based Routing Rules i.e.

HTTP / HTTPS / FTP from INTERNAL Network with ANY DESTINATION use ETH2.

But these rules does't have any effect. Web-Traffic still runs on ETH1.

Have you followed:

If you are using both the smtp and http proxy, then you seem to be out of luck.  According to the above if you are using the proxy, you can't policy route for that protocol.  You need to setup the default route based on which interface you want the proxied traffic to use and then policy route the other traffic to the other interface.

Since you want smtp traffic to go out one interface and http another, if you are using the proxy for both you can accomplish this.

Now if you are just using the proxy for one, or not at all.  Then policy based routing should work.

Thanks for your answer. As a workaround we now use just the ADSL-Connection as the standard gateway and send outgoing emails via smarthost.
