Look at Double-Take.  We are getting ready to do the same thing in
geographically separate sites.

Subject: [exchangelist] Redundant Exchange System

My management would like me to implement an Exchange system with some
sort of server redundancy.

The idea would be two separate mail servers, one being a backup of the

Mail coming into server 1 would also get stored on server 2.

Both machines would be online all the time and maybe a replication
process would run every 15 minutes that would synchronize the two.

In the event server 1 crashed, server2 would take over until server 1
could be fixed and got back on line.

From what I have read I don't think this functionality is built into
Exchange I think I would need a third party product.

Does any one have any experience with such a set up.
