I'm in the process of writing our disaster recovery plan.  One question is "when email is sent and the company uses and in-house exchange server is the email accessible if the exchange server goes down"  

So basically is our mailed stored anywhere before we get it or is it just routed to us via the MX record?

Unless you have a hosted spam filter or mail relay it will simply be queued on the senders email server and retry at set intervals.

Therefore under disaster recovery circumstances you will not be able to retrieve the emails.
