Check out what MX records can do for you.  As a side note, some ISP's offer
this as a part of their service; they will queue the mail for you if your
server is down for less than 72 hours.

Subject: [exchangelist] Backup mail server (One domain, two mail servers)

Hey there

I setup exchange to receive mail for 2 domains. Its working fine. As a
contingency plan i want to setup a scenario in which even if my mail server
aint available i shouldnt have LOST MAIL/ BOUNCED MAIL issues.
I studied a few possibilities including clustering but that aint applicable
to our scenario. The possibility applicable is the presence of 2 mail
servers on the same domain. If my primary mail server is not available for
some reason, my second machine takes over. I know thats possible but HOW?
Can someone guide me to the implementation. At the moment, i have one
machine servicing clients for 2 domains.
