I have two scenarios in hand.

1. I am sending bulk mail to some 1000 people.
The mail body is same.
If my SMTP server goes down then while the message is being sent, how would I come to know which mails have been sent and which mails are yet to be send. How does Microsoft Exchange work on this.

If microsoft exchange keeps the log of it. what are the contents of the log.

2. In case one of my servers go down, then how ncan I shift the load to another server I have. How does Microsoft Exchange behave in this regard.

Kindly reply to my ID wizlokesh@rediffmail.com

Thank in Advance:)

Regards,
Lokesh.

You can verify what I wrote in the RFC of SMTP.
If you email client got an OK message from the SMTP server, then regardless of the brand of the SMTP server, this server is resposible to keep this email untill it is sent. If your email client got an error message, then the mail server should have not responsibiliy to deliver the message, and you should try and send it again.
For most mail servers, you can see how many emails are yet to be sent in their console.
