Failover of Public Mail Services - Activesync & OWA - to DR Site

I am planning a DR site for our mail servers and am trying to muddle through a question....

If our front-end server's public address is bound to a domain name -- this information being used to create an SSL certificate -  how do you "failover" OWA and Activesync?  If I redirect my webmail address to a new IP at the DR site, it will break the SSL cert.  The webmail address is also the URL entered into the PDAs connecting via Activesync to the front-end server....

not a big ssl expert however..
for self made certificates in small business server I had no problems when changing the IP address due to an ISP change - the certificate still worked after changing the dns record for mail.company.com to the new ISP.

can your DR site connect to your ISP with the same account details (during failover) and then hence get the same IP settings?
Simply have two routers at the DR site so when a disaster strikes you can connect witht the preconfigured second router?

Unfortunately we have two different ISPs -- our DR site is in a different state....

Not sure if that's true yet by personal testing (since it's a live site) but if you've seen it done, that's very promising!
