    I'm kind of a newbie and I've got a couple of questions that I'm hoping I can get answered.

    My situation is this. I have a site that is hosted on a friends server. It occassionally goes down (usually when he is away on business trips). Needless to say I worry about my email getting lost. Anyway, I believe that my registrar allows for a second IP, so if the first one isn't avalible then it will go to the second one (I was thinking of pointing the second one to my router).

    What I was wondering is this. Is it possible to hack a linksys router to have it forward email to something like a yahoo account? Could I do this for multiple domain names? blah.com and inverseblah.com.

    Also, if the site was down I was wondering if a default page could be set up. I know when I browse to my dsl modem from the outside it has basic information about the modem. I was hoping to put something up like "this site is down for maintenance".

    Anyway, I don't if any of this is possible, I was just curious. Thanks, Ryan
