If it was me, I would say, no to acting as a backup mailbox server. You
can be their backup MX server, but no access to their mail while their
system is down. You can easily store email until their server gets back
But the issue of syncing mailbox adds/deletes, aliases, groups and
passwords is beyond what is reasonably possible. I can not think of any
way to automate that process, especially passwords.
