You need to provide more information, what hardware do you have would be a start ? what exactly are you trying to do with 2 WAN interfaces, give as much information as you can.

When you bring the second connection up its probably setting itself as the gateway of last resort, meaning all your LAN traffic will be going through that too ?

Do you know for sure the ADSL line is working.

when the ADSL interface is active can you show us the routes active at that time ? i suspect you have two and the new one is with a better metric.

Hi,

This is happening since the pppoe come with default distance value 5 and your static route towards wan1 comes with distance 10.

In order to send only mail server traffic via wan2,

1. Set the distance as same with higher priority

config system interface
edit wan2
set distance 10
set priority 100
end

2. Configure policy route

Under Router > Policy > Create new

Specify the source as mail server and outgoing address all with destination interface as wan2

3. configure a firewall policy from mail server to wan2

Cheers
