I am currently investigating the possibility of adding a second cyrus server, the goal being to entirely duplicate the mailspool/userbase and have users POP in some sort of balanced means, either DNS load balancing or otherwise.  We have a pool of inbound MX servers that handle email, delivering to Cyrus over lmtp.  In the event of a crash, we would want to repair/rebuild the dead server and have it re-join the pairing.

I have read on this list's archives that having user interaction on two replicated servers is iffy, and I wonder what the point is, or is there alternative documentation/methods I should be considering to do this.  If it is true that popping email off of two servers set up in replication is a bad idea, I wonder what the point of it really is?
