Hi experts, I have 2 separate internet WAN links from 2 different ISPs. The WAN links are connected to 2 separate firewalls. 1 FW for each ISP. How do I configure internet redundancy for my servers should one internet fails on 1 link? I want incoming mail and outgoing mail to not be interrupted.

You will need to set up 2 MX records in your external DNS. One pointing to your primary link IP with a low preference number (high priority) and the second to your secondary link IP with a high preference number (low priority). Outgoing mail will depend on your send connectors in your Exchange setup.

If your internal router doesn't have the capability to failover the link you may need to do that manually in case of DR.
