Can we convert the mirror setup into a master -> slave relationship, while still enabling the second server as a backup? I assume that should the first server fail, we would need to migrate the second server's database to the first prior to activation.
Yes. All you have to do is to disable the mysql replication and then dont use the ispconfig interface on the second server. To ensure that its not used anymore, you should delete the ispconfig.vhost link in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ folder on the slave.

Could we still use the second server a secondary MX record under this setup?
