We have multiple public IP's, so it was pretty easy -- we just used an in-house IIS server. For a couple hundred bucks, we added Vamsoft's ORF to protect against spam.

I say that is a perfectly good way to set up a backup MX.
For backup MX, we are using a simple Exim server with a few gigabytes worth of mail spool. Not sure what else you need for a backup MX than some temporary holding area for mail while the real MX is down or offline. It's after all just a convenience, not a disaster-type setup.

Great offers in economic terms, but wilfully redirecting our customers entire mailflow to a US company will definitely not happen.
YMMV.

We just use a Dell R210 server with a base license Kerio install.
Then we added every domain we want a MX backup for and configured the correct DNS handling etc.
Cheap solution which is totally in our own control and we can add as many domains as we want. As it is only for fallback it doesn't need much storage so you are save with the default hard disks (250GB).
