I am setting up a "hot" site for my network. I am planning on installing a second Exchange 2007 server and plan on implimenting SCR for DR but I would also like the server to be the secondary delivery point for email in case the primary server is unavailable for a short time. More to the point I want email to be delivered to the secondary server if the first briefly goes offline and then be delivered when it becomes available again. Is this posible while SCR is enabled between the two?

No. The server would have to be activated before hand. Review the link below that compares and explains how it SCR works.

You will also need an additional MX record with a higher value so external clients can send mail to this server when it is activated.
