Umar, I think what you're trying to accomplish, referred to as failover,
isn't possible in a stock Exchange environment. There are third-party
products that you could use to accomplish that. Check out Veritas
(, Neverfail (, or just search
on Google for exchange failover.

Ok i found out abt the MX records implementation. I learnt that 2 MX
records can exist one for each machine having exchange 2000 configured to
receive email for the 2 domains. Both will have some cost issue involved
which will set the priority. I got all that. What confused me now is that
how will both the MAIL SERVERS replicate data amongst one another. Both
should contain the same mailboxes right to be able to replace each
other...plz drop in some ideas...
