There is no way to replicate mailboxes with the native Exchange product as you 
You would need to look at a third party product such as NSI Double take...
Quest availablibility manager also has some pretty cool functionality like what 
your looking for:
Hope that helps!

Subject: [exchangelist] EXCHANGE Mailboxes replication

As a Newby EXCHANGE Administrator (EXCHANGE 5.5), I have been striving
to find a way to 'REPLICATE individual mailboxes' in EXCHANGE - which
would be a great fault-tolerance functionality -. Unluckily, EXCHANGE 5.5
replicates ActiveDirectory, Addressbooks and public folders, but that's
all !  Is there any way to achieve such a mailbox replication ?
Is EXCHANGE server 2003 able to achieve it ?

I have been considering using 'Public Folders' instead (replication
capable) but they can only 'receive' messages, not send them. So they are
useless for worldwide communication and email.

Such a mailbox replication would be a definitive advantage, using EXCHANGE
Server rather than a SMTP server. Moreover, I imagine EXCHANGE server's
RPC could do it easily ... (it already does it for public folders) so why
is this functionality desperately inexistent for individual mailboxes? Any
ideas ?
                   Thanks in advance for your insight
