You shouldn't lose mail because your mail server is down.  The sender should
retry and only reject after about 48 hours (depending on the configuration
of the sender).

I've had mail servers down for the whole weekend before and not lost any
mail.  It's always amusing to see the flood when you connect it back up
though.
