Is there any way by which mails can be re-send in case of an exception due to reasons like Mail Server not reachable, Mail Server not configured etc.

The intention is to re-send the mails after a specific period of time & repeating the process by regular interval of time till the mails are send.

Thanks in advance

Good idea. It is indeed how Sendmail (www.sendmail.org), QMail (www.qmail.org), Exim, etc. MTA's operate. Now implement it. You'll need a scheduler, etc., keeping track of the mailbox where the bounces arrive, matching them up with a database of messages that haven't been successfully handed off yet, etc. It's a big project, but absolutely essential for any big operation sending out a lot of email.
