Gateway Servers

Gateway Servers allow you to use another server, SmarterMail or not, to handle outgoing mail in order to reduce load on your primary server. They can also be used to combat blacklisting. If the server gets blacklisted, simply rotate the primary IP on the network card to a different one to send out on the new IP.
