That's sort of what I suspected.  I'm considering running UUCP or
setting up postfix to act in a primary/secondary MX solution.  It
doesn't look like too difficult of a situation.  I'll be sure to
document the process.

I've got one last question concerning Kolab with multiple hosts.  If I
create a new user on either of my Kolab hosts, will that information
automatically be added to the other server?

Thanks for the response!
