OT: Backup MX

We recently had a day of downtime for our Internet connection. We don't 
have a backup MX to queue mail while our  mail server is unreachable.

My question is this. If I were to get a DSL connection setup and connect 
a backup DNS server and backup MX server, would there be a way
for users to access incoming mail that is queued on the backup MX? How 
is something like this normally handled? We rely on e-mail here and
need some sort of backup plan if our main connection goes down.

Thanks for any suggestions.
