I have a postfix/spamassassin email server running in a DMZ.  I am trying to have it query 2 different DNS servers depending on what domain suffix they are trying to resolve.  I found a way to do it in the Mac world but not linux.  The server is Ubutu 7.10.

Here is the link on how to do it in the Mac world.  Can something like this be done in the Linux world?

in linux you should edit /etc/resolv.conf and enter inside:

search domain.com
nameserver 12.14.151.1
nameserver 12.14.151.2
nameserver 12.14.151.3

Actually the answer by Oren instructs the system to look for foo.domain1.com and foo.domain2.com if foo cannot be found.
The OP seems to want to check with server1 when looking for foo.domain1.com and server2 when looking for foo.domain2.com
I don't see how to configure that at the resolver; rather this may have to be configured at an internal name server ...

have a look at dnsmasq - a dns server.

you point your resolver to it 127.0.0.1, and you can configure dnsmasq to do what you want.
