Fail over capabilities apply to public folders only, not mailbox stores.
Mailbox stores fail over capabilities is available with MS Exchange 2000

If I am not mistaken setting up an additional email server under the same
site will give you some of the failover capabilities. I know that you can
share the IMC and recipients as a whole. You might investigate this as a
possible scenario.

I'm looking to resist DoS attacks and provide a degree of fault tolerance in
Exchange. I basically want 2 Exchange servers doing the job of one.
Clients would not know the difference and be round-robin distributed between
the two servers. If one server went down, the other would temporarily
handle the full load.

Does anyone know of a way to run Exchange (any version) from a replicated
information store? Is there any kind of solution that would allow this
(short of a SAN)?

Please forgive me if this is easy... I am fairly experienced in
security/networking/programming, but Exchange is a new beast to me.

Thanks in advance!
