Since you don't mention the servers being in separate sites, or any need
for DR.  Why not consider a Server Cluster.  I implemented it in our
office with an EMC SAN and it has performed excellent.  If one server
fails, the other picks up the services automatically.  It has been

        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 other.
        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.
