Cemaphore Systems' MailShadow allows for Microsoft Exchange Server or another e-mail system to be synchronized in real time with an off-site, cloud-based alternative. This provides a backup of critical e-mail, calendar and contact information, and gives users the ability to access the information from anywhere the Internet reaches. However, MailShadow doesn't really have much of a user interface. About the only way to know it's actually working is to check your router's activity lights, look at both of your e-mail accounts and try to determine if you see any signs of messages synchronizing.
