    I'm just getting a Windows 2003 Helm server to replace a Windows reseller account.

    Is it possible to get cPanel & Helm to become secondary DNS & Mail servers for each other (easily) ?

    Go on, have a guess
    Yes, it's possible. None of it will be automatic. DNS would have to be setup using a traditional master/slave relationship which you can research on the web (for cPanel it would be for BIND), secondary (backup) MX is simply a matter of setting up a higher scoring MX entry for the domains and then configuring the other server to allow relaying for those domains. In the case of cPanel and exim, this would mean listing each domain in /etc/secondarymx.

    I'd kind of guessed there was no simple way, looks like it's time to do things manually :)
