hi, we are using exchange 2003, if the service is turned off [like when rebooting], where does the email go if it cannot be received during the downtime period?

It will sit in the queue on the sending server. That server will keep trying to send the message until it times out and then an NDR will be generated.

If you don't receive your email directly - so it comes through another server, then that server will queue the email.
Similarly, if you have an additional MX record then email will be delivered to that server instead.
