now you want control the servers "out there"?

generally most servers will requeue the mail for anywhere from 6 hours-2 days 
(its up to the other mail admin) If your server doesn't come online before 
then, generally the user will get a bounce message saying the mail could not be 

I am assuming you have either only got one server or both are in a the same 
site. Chances of both servers going down in your site at once are small, if you 
have planned right, redundant power supply's, backup internet connection, more 
than one 5 port switch..

The best way to do it is contact your ISP (or a mail hosting company) and see 
if they can setup to catch your mail if your server goes down. Then create a 
second or third mx record to point to them. if one or both of your servers are 
down mail will be delivered to them then you can configure your server to 
collect the mail when you are back up.

  correct that is a good config how would it work if the backup was in a 
different site or org what i am trying to accomplish is if my only server goes 
down i would like a server out there to be able to queue the mail and when the 
server comes back up the email is sent to the primary or the primary ask for 
the email

  We have 2 exchange servers in 2 different sites. If one is down, the other 
gets mail and keeps it till the first is back up.

  It would work the same if you had 2 servers in the same site. They both need 
MX records and IP addresses on the internet so other servers can find them.
