Failover/LB questions on Sonicwall TZ215

"For example, many of my customers have a static IP for their Mail Services on a T1 or Ethernet over Copper legacy or slower connection that has a real SLA (Service Level Agreement) then a significantly less expensive but much faster Cable/FiOS broadband connection with a Dynamic IP which is used for high speed web browsing and file transfer, or streaming video, music, etc.  In this case, we create Sonicwall Rules to Route all mail services over the Primary interface and all FTP/HTTP traffic over the secondary dynamic IP interface."

Someone had posted this reply in a similar thread and this is exactly what I am looking to do on my TZ215 device. Would someone be able to elaborate further on how to specifically and correctly create this static route for mail? Thanks!

Also, I am having trouble deciding on what failover/lb mode to use. I currently have it set to basic failover, but does this mean that my secondary WAN is on standby completely until the WAN1 fails? To the point that I cant even route traffic through it with static routes?
