IMAP Replication


I have been given the task by work to solve a email server problem that we are facing. We currently have an cyrus-imap server (about 5 years old) running within our UK office that serves offices around the world. We are having understandable performance issues with this current setup.

What we would like to do is have imap servers in each major location, for performance yet have the mailboxes replicated to the UK and US offices to also provide a failover/DR solution if things go wrong.

I have looked at both Cyrus-murder and aggregator but these seem be used for distributed/load balance servers, where realistically we are after a "multi-master" replication similar to what you would find in a MySQL database setup.

Even though I have experience with Cyrus-IMAP I would be willing to try other versions if they provide the solution for the problem.

Do any of you here know if this is possible and could you point me in the direction of where to start to get the ball rolling on this.

Many thanks,
