I am looking to setup a backup MX record for a customer.  I am happy about creating the reocrd in DNS and to forward the email to our server, but I am not sure what to do then.  Can the email be -
A) Stored on the server and then sent out when the prinary MX is avaliable again
B) All mail delivered to an internall account so they can access it via OWA
C) Or a combination of the 2 above.

I know that a Accepted Domain has to be added and a send connector created but how do I get the email to store and forward from 1 to the other.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Okay - thanks.

You will need to setup an Internal Relay Domain (if you don't have an Edge Transport Server) and a scoped SEND Connector for the Accepted domain and then you need to add the Relevant Smarthost to the SEND Connector (IP or FQDN of the actual Mail Server that the mail is intended for).

This is described in the following article:

The primary mail server may just get a load of spam from you though if you just accept the mail and pass it on as they will see you as a good source and trust the mail you send it, so could get messy.
