    it's possible to create A record associate with a weight like MX record.

    something like
    A mywebsite
    A mywebsite
    I need mywebsite with respond user request only
    is down.

  2. Read inline please.

    DNS A records do not support weight only MX and SRV records support weight
    or Priority, at this time, web browsers will not query for SRV records.

    Use Outlook Express?... Get OE_Quotefix:
    It will strip signature out and more
    Keep a back up of your OE settings and folders

  4. This isn't a job for DNS.

    If you have two identical Websites for redundancy,...then you should be
    using Windows Network Load Balancing (NLB) to "cluster" the two servers
    together. This will othen mean you will have to redesign the way the
    website "maintains state" since some of the common methods don't work in an
    NLB situation.
