That goal is not realistic.

One question is whether your uptime definition means "someone can 
connect via IMAP" or "someone can connect via IMAP and IMAP 
acknowledgements of state-changing operations are guaranteed to be 
replicated across the cluster". If you actually want your cluster's 
semantics to preserve email client operations in the face of the loss of 
one member of the cluster then rsync is not enough.

You might want to chase down the Cambridge patches to cyrus, which added 
an application-level transaction log to that particular imap server.
