I have a couple of small clients in Wilmington North Carolina, long story short they have inhouse exchange servers and we have a massive hurricane coming. Power will be probably be down for extended time.. Any recommendations for a place to temporary send mail, both have spam titan but I don't think it holds mail in queue.  I understand I could just change the MX Record to a mail service but just wanted to see what suggestions were out there.. Thanks in advance.

the area it self having massive hurricane..means lot of power issues and data ai site issues... so best advise is to migrate all to cloud based mail system... i.e office 365  or google apps etc.

which can access anywhere any time...over internet..i.e mobile ...tab, laptop..can send recieve email...using outlook client etc.

as well data stores on the cloud not on premise means data is secures...

no big buget no big maintenance..no technical expertise requirements..

simple and sweet...

all the best
