How can I setup a backup exchange server? We have a MX record that points to our main box. I want the secondary MX record to point to the backup machine with a lower priority. How can I point clients to the backup machine if the primary one goes down?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

With Exchange 2000 this is not an option unless you use a third-party application like xosoft or something. Your only High Availability option is a cluster with an active and a passive node. There are standby continuous replication and cluster continuous replication options available with Exchange 2007, but not 2000.
