I can only hope so ;-)

That said from where I'm sitting it would still need to happen... Especially 
the check on whether the mailbox already exists somewhere else in the murder I 
think can create quite the confusion if a mail for a NEW mailbox arrives at 
two backends at the same time... And then I suppose there's inter-backend 
communication on backend1 that was first and backend2 that now realizes there 
was no mailbox for the message, but there is now, presumably though LMTP.

Excuse my rambling ;-)

Kind regards,
