Hey guys

Quick question.  A customer of mine recently installed 3 exchange 2013 servers in his network (two locally and one remotely over VPN) and it is working like a charm. He has all three in a DAG and the databases are replicating across all three with zero issues.  Now, I just happen to be digging around and I noticed that all three have their receive connectors enabled.  If one of them goes down, does that mean that the next one in line can receive emails if I have the MX records setup to forward to a different IP address? (the client has multiple public IP's on his router).  If so, that would of course be awesome :-)

Perfect!!  I will do that this weekend.  Just curious though do I have to do 1 - 1 NAT or can I just open up the various ports on my firewall?  My firewall supports as many public IPs as I can get...
