We currently have a mail relay server that is configured to receive messages from different applications and basically forwards the messages to O365 using a connector. Basically, it is running an SMTP Virtual Server on IIS 7.5.
What HA solution should I use?
Any GOTCHA's that I should look out for?
Any help or advice would be appreciated.

My apologies for the lack of info deepak. Thanks so much for the quick reply.
Currently we have a Windows Server 2012r2 VM that is hosting an SMTP Virtual Server, using IIS 7.5. Essentially its function is to be our SMTP relay to route internal mail from our applications our through an Office365 connector.
I am looking to make a cluster for this to make is HA, basically we are trying to create a failover VM and run it in a cluster.
Is this something that you have seen done before? Any ideas on where I can go from here?
