Email Backup Solution
Posted on 2006-06-21
Hi, i have an Exchange 2003 server in which my domain name has a MX record pointing directly at it for SMTP delivery. The problem is that the server is a bit buggy at the minute and once the server goes down or a exchange service crashes everybody gets NDR messages (Not Good!). I have tried setting up a second MX record for the domain for backup, pointing to a third party system but this doesnt seem to work as the emails still get sent back to the senders !.
Is there any other solution i can use to hold the emails without the senders getting a NDR message, any good services online or a setting in exchange 2003, dont really want to buy another exchange server solely for this purpose though
