Can you expand on what you mean by adding SMTP service to the cluster?  If its a simple SMTP service that you use as a relay, should be simple since your cluster IP remains the same.

On a Windows Cluster, that should be simple.  Just make sure that both servers have SMTP Service installed and have the same configuration.  When the cluster failover, the cluster IP stays the same and all SMTP traffic should be picked up by the failover server.
