Hi,

We are planning for a shutdown of mailbox servers due to a power supply maintenance.  How can I make the hub server to retain the emails when the mailbox server is down.

Thanks.

You don't have to do anything. Assuming the HT is on a different power grid and isn't going down the HT will just receive and hold the messages

What if hub is also down. Will the Edge server be able to retain the emails. Hub was also down in my case but the external users got an NDR saying Server has tried delivering the message without success.

The edge won't hold the emails; that's not its job.
If your entire environment is down then the sending systems will just retry every few hours for a couple of days before timing out and sending an NDR to the originating mailbox.
