Why are you replicating the mailbox. Why don't you put the mailboxes on NFS
and just have all of the servers dump into the same mailbox. The POP3
frontends can all pull from the same store as well.

Mail servers are one of the odd services that I've seen where it isn't
necessary to implement a cluster to scale well.
