How long will it queue up mail if the primary server is down for an extended period of time?

Just put

in your smtproutes, and add the domains to rcpthosts, and have the
secondary be listed as a lower priority MX for those domains. At which
point, it should take over. That will route all mail coming into that
box to the primary directly.

There may be a better way of doing this but, to my way of thinking,
pulling it to the primary is the way to go. I have this kind
of set up
and I use fetchmail running on the primary server to periodically get
anything that spills over to the secondary.

Can anyone point me to a resource (or resources) that

set up a qmail queueing server?

Basically I need to set up a secondary, backup server that
acts as the
secondary mx which will queue all mail for one or two
domains, and try
to deliver it to the primary mx over and over until it can.

Pretty basic stuff, but I can't seem to find anyplace that
how to set it up in qmail.
