Nope, the mail will just spool up (deferred) on the mail server you're 
forwarding the mail from until your mail server is accessible.  
Typically most mail servers will hold onto mail for at least 4 days 
until giving up on trying to deliver the mail.

I'm not with iiNet, but do they have something within a customer login 
area, or potentially from a webmail facility to set mail forward options?
