thanks for your answer. There are still some things I do not quite
From section 2.1:
The backend servers serve the actual data and are fully functional
standalone IMAP servers that serve a set of mailboxes. Each backend
server maintains a local mailboxes database that lists what mailboxes
are available on that server.
Once the local aspects of mailbox creation are complete, the mailbox is
activated on the MUPDATE server, and is considered available to any
client through the frontends.
So what does that mean for the backends exactly ?
Are all mailboxes from all backend servers accessible through the
backends or is the whole murder only accessible through the frontends ?
So users connecting to the wrong backend cannot access theire mailbox
and get an error ?
Only frontend-servers proxy for all backends and one backend-server
alone does not proxy for other backends and pushes local changes to the
mupdate master to make the changes available for the frontends ?
Thanks for your help!
