Mailbox subscriptions in a murder

We do this with cyrus 2.2.12 (2 frontend, 1 master, 3 backend
server) no problem.  Some of the shared mailboxes are on
one server, while subscribers are on another.

We run the frontend servers in proxy mode only.

Hi all. We have a largish (~120,000 user / ~ 485,000 mailboxes) cyrus 2.2
install that is spread across 6 frontends and 4 backends in a murder and I just
had an interesting question that I can't seem to answer. We have a number of
shared mailboxes that get certain types of messages such as abuse mail and spam
reports. Recently more people wish to subscribe to these mailboxes but we have
run into a small problem. Most of these people do not have their inboxes on the
same backend and therefore they can not subscribe to the shared mailbox using
their mail client. Does anyone have a workaround for this or even encountered
this problem? I tried editing the subscription file by hand since our
subscription_db is set to flat but that did not work. Thanks.
