I have a Cisco ASA 5510 running 9.1(4), presently i have a static nat port forwarding all inbound TCP 25 traffic to an internal email scanner's IP address. This is all working fine.

What i would like to know is whether it is possible to setup the ASA NAT config in such a way that if the email scanner failed the ASA would would then NAT all inbound TCP 25 traffic to another specified internal device.

I had in mined something like setting up sla monitoring to the email scanner from the ASA and if it failed to responed having a backup or lower priority NAT kickin.

I have found examples of using this method with outbound dynamic natting to two different ISP's but have had no luck finding any examples of a solution similar to what i would like to achieve.

Nope.  The load balancing feature you want isn't built into ASA.  You need another load balancing device, such as an F5 or a couple of linux boxes running haproxy.

(Most folks call it load balancing, even though it's actually failover.)
