Best way to make an Exchange 2003 Failover with another Server/software.

We'd like to create an Exchange Server 2003 fail-over as best as possible, with an off-site server.

Perhaps failing over to another Exchange Server, or a POP3 server.

The most important thing is for people around the world to continue using their mail server in case of problems where the server is hosted.  

I checked into some failover solutions, but it seems like the packaged software service ones cost around $12,000 a year.

Does anyone have some wizardly ideas on the best way to do this?  We have a server
2 Solutions
You may use some DR Solutions from Symnatec or Double take. THese are real good solutions.
It depends on what you are planning for.
If you are looking at simple failover to a server next to the current server then you could switch to clustering.
If you want to failover to a separate site, then you are looking at either something like DoubleTake or NeverFail or a Geo Cluster.
Either solution is not cheap. The longer you can be without email the cheaper it is.
