Hi all.

I have two MS exchange 2007 Servers (SP3) that are physically in different sites under a VPN.

Server A contains all the mailboxes. Server B receives mail but keeps it queued without moving it to the mailboxes. How can I fix this?

What I want is that server A stores the mailboxes and server B handles the in/out traffic, so that if server A fails, emails will be queued in server B.

At the same time I set the DNS MX registers so that the first one points to server B and the second one to server A. SO if server B fails, email comes in/out throug server A.
Thank you.
