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

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.
