Exchange 2003 act as MX-backup

I would like to set up Exchange 2003 as a MX-backup server in case my main
mail server fails. The Exchange server should keep the mail and then send it
to the main server when it comes online again.

How do I configure this on the Exchange Server?

You don't need an Exchange server for this. You can perform this setup with
just and SMTP server installed on the OS> You should be able to find
configuration steps in I haven't done this myself as my ISP
provides me the store and forward SMTP capabilities upstream and I have no
need to add another layer inside my network, but I'm pretty sure I've read
the steps somewhere.
