    Hi,
    I need to create an infrastructure that allows to divide a list of mails to
    send among a series of postfix mail servers.

    For example, I imagine this situation so :
    I install a series of postfix mail servers and when it's necessary to send a
    mail it's enough to send it to an IP address that the actual delivery of
    the mail is delegated to a server that has the lowest charge of jobs...

    I'm wondering if a particular configuration of postfix can be useful to
    resolve this issue...

    Someone advised me to insert in the DNS zone a list of MX records defined
    with the same level of priority so the DNS server will choose one of them
    without invoking always the same mail server....
    It could be an idea, in my opinion, but I'd prefer a "less random" solution
    and a more scientific one....

    Thanks for every suggestion you'll send to me....
