Dear All,

I am currently looking at method of madness for a DR site for our exchange
network.  Before I go any further, we are using Exchange 5.5 SP4, and we
are taking a backup (via LTO tape) and it is taken of site.

We want to have an active / active DR site, with mail entering into our
main site and our DR site.  Users will be looking at one mail box on a
server in our main site.  We want users mail boxes to be copied to both
site, of which will be different sites (and servers) and be syncronised.

I can find software that mirrors the entire server, or IS/DS edb files,
but nothing that can replicate to a mailbox level directly to another
exchange server.  In a way we want to copy users mail boxes from one
server to another in real-time, or near real-time.

Does anybody know, or has come accross such a senario and what software
they used, etc.  I am just asking for pointers not bullet point
descriptions and solutions!!

Thanks in advance,

James Elstone.
