This kind of logic would need to be part of the client, because the server is not available to do anything. What kind of client are you using - JavaMail? It might be as simple as handling the exception that occurs if the server is not available, and using a different server as the fallback in that case.

Yes, I am using JavaMail API. Thanks for your reply. I was thinking on the same line, i.e. catching the Exception, and then use alternate server, if there is an Exception.
But I thought maybe there is some other trick as well (in JavaMail API itself), which I am missing out.
