I am only familiar with the expensive option (second exchange server
license). You add another exchange server to the organization. Could be
the same site or a different site. 
 
Other less expensive options are also available and probably fairly easy
to do.
 
No, you would not set up more mailboxes on the second server. That
server is there only to collect mail and send it on to the server that
houses the user mailbox. Yes, you need a second MX record pointing to
the second server. Otherwise no one would know to send mail there if the
first server was unavailable.
 
Depending on the speed of your connections between the two physical
"sites" you could add it to the Exchange site or to a different Exchange
site. The things to consider there are the type of connectors you would
establish between the sites.
 
I suggest reading up on Exchange on Microsoft's web site.  There are how
to documents on adding servers to organizations and sites.

How does one setup a "catch-all" email system for a domaing?

For example,

 

 

Mycompany.com mx1 points to my main exchanger server each person has a
mailbox

 

If I setup and mx2 record pointing to another mail server - do I have to
setup one mailbox/user too? Or is there some sort of setting that just
temporarily stores all emails into one container?

 

Thanks

 

Gabriel

(The best way to do it is contact your ISP (or a mail hosting company)
and see if they can setup to catch your mail if your server goes down.
Then create a second or third mx record to point to them. if one or both
of your servers are down mail will be delivered to them then you can
configure your server to collect the mail when you are back up) this is
what i want you are right in need a catch server out there on my isp or
host provider how would i setup a catch server

now you want control the servers "out there"?

 

generally most servers will requeue the mail for anywhere from 6 hours-2
days (its up to the other mail admin) If your server doesn't come online
before then, generally the user will get a bounce message saying the
mail could not be delivered.

 

I am assuming you have either only got one server or both are in a the
same site. Chances of both servers going down in your site at once are
small, if you have planned right, redundant power supply's, backup
internet connection, more than one 5 port switch..

 

The best way to do it is contact your ISP (or a mail hosting company)
and see if they can setup to catch your mail if your server goes down.
Then create a second or third mx record to point to them. if one or both
of your servers are down mail will be delivered to them then you can

        correct that is a good config how would it work if the backup
was in a different site or org what i am trying to accomplish is if my
only server goes down i would like a server out there to be able to
queue the mail and when the server comes back up the email is sent to
the primary or the primary ask for the email

        We have 2 exchange servers in 2 different sites. If one is down,
the other gets mail and keeps it till the first is back up.

         

        It would work the same if you had 2 servers in the same site.
They both need MX records and IP addresses on the internet so other
servers can find them.
