I would say not at an interval but as soon as there is an action
performed on one mailbox, the other one would be pushed to do something.
I believe that is called rolling replication.
I would not be really happy with a interval synchronisation. It would
make it harder to use both platforms at the same time, and that is what
I want as well. So there is a little-bit of load-balancing involved, but
more and more _availability_.
Being able to use both platforms at the same time maybe implies that
there is either no master/slave role or that this is auto-elected
between the two and that this role is floating...
