We recently had a annex a upgrade which has gone horribly wrong and left our smtp domain in limbo, we were unable to access emails whilst the service was done. We will rectify this by having a second adsl line soon, however I was wondering what the best solution would be to have email failover. We will opt probably for GFI MAX MailProtection, but is there a way to mirror that backup, or another failover elsewhere? Ie. Im sure they will be fine but if for whatever reason I cannot access emails from them could I have a alternate access with another system elsewhere?
hope thats clear

Hi,

Either you can go with server recovery option as per below article.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc164310%28EXCHG.65%29.aspx

or if you have exchange 2007 then you can enable journaling for your mailboxes to local .pst.
And can access the same later in case of outage.

Depends what you are looking for, i.e.

1. do you want to have your own failover protection and use something like DoubleTake, NeverFail etc
2. Or do you want to have a DR type service so that if your server goes down you can continue to send, receive and access historical email?  i.e. email continuity like these options
