Hi

Is there a way to have all the e-mail coming to one exchange server to be re-send to another server that reside offsite, then allow the users to have an owa to the offsite server in case the onsite server goes down.?
Does this mean that all users has to be created on the offsite server?

Not well.

The best you could do is something like DoubleTake or NeverFail, they are basically cheaper versions of clusters, or geo-clusters.

I mean, you could easily have another exchange server sitting offsite, and then get it to send a copy to the other mailboxes as well, but this will not get sent items, or synchronize with mailboxes - meaning even if you did spend the hundreds of hours configuring it, the users would still be disadvantaged.
