When you say traditional murder, do you also mean one single mupdate server?

I'm sure it's possible, the documentation states it as well. I just haven't 
managed to actually get it implemented (with the patches that have been 
shipped for about 5-6 years, in at least 4 generations of Enterprise Linux 
products and 13 Fedora releases).

That's "not implemented" besides maintaining the actual functionality of the 
autocreation of mailboxes or sieve scripts or implementation details thereof; 
the cyrus master process just wouldn't start.

Thank you in advance,
