Hi,

we recently had an outage were a number of Mailbox databases went offline due to Windows Cluster problems. If the Mailbox database goes offline is there a certain queue the email messages are stored in until they come back online for redundancy?

When a database goes offline, all emails destined to mailboxes on that database remain in the SMTP queue until the mailboxes are avaialble for delivery.

Yes if database is offline all the emails will store in SMTP queue database (Exchange Server 2010 store their queues in an ESE database. This database is located in the “C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\data\Queue” directory.)  queue will gets empty once database comes online.
