postfix“… Use a fallback_relay host for mail that cannot be delivered upon the first attempt. This “graveyard” machine can use shorter retry times for difficult to reach destinations. See “Tuning the frequency of deferred mail delivery attempts” … ”

“… When mail is being deferred frequently, fixing the problem is always better than increasing the frequency of delivery attempts. However, if you can control only the delivery attempt frequency, consider using a dedicated fallback_relay “graveyard” machine for bad destinations, so that these destinations do not ruin the performance of normal mail deliveries. …”
