We had an issue where our firewall went down.
No internet traffic in or out of our network.
We have an Exchange 2007 server.

The question is. Where did all the email go?
Exchange is running properly. but I have a gap of time,
where there is no emails.

Where did those emails go?

External email sent to your server was in local queue on remote server or deleted (depends remote server configuration) and internal mail remains on a queue on your server waiting to go outside. If default configuration was not changed, wait 2 dais before deleting if remains on queue.
On case of external mail, sender was informed what happens with your email, delayed or deleted.

As answered above. But in short, emails that you have not received will still come in now (depends on retry configuration from the originating mail server). But mails that have failed, will result in an NDR message in the sender's email box. I.e. important mails from normal people (not automated systems), you will probably still get (if important, they will resend, if not, probably a phone call asking what's wrong with your mail server).
