Hash: SHA1

This is what I would do (if they were all qmail vpopmail machines):  (this
is a UGLY hack... but it'd probably work)

MX (emailserver1)
 account: user1

MX (emailserver2)
 account: user2

MX (emailserver3)
 account: user3

if they are all vpopmail do as follows:
each domain has a primary domain of mydomain.com and aliased domain
(computer1.mydomain.com e.g. if it was computer1)

put in into computer1 .qmail-default
|if [ "$HOST" -eq "mydomain.com" ]; then "$LOCAL"@computer2.mydomain.com; fi
|if [ "$HOST" -eq "mydomain.com" ]; then "$LOCAL"@computer3.mydomain.com; fi

That way you would only forward original emails (and not in a loop) no
where would a message from a different machine computer ever end up back
at the beginning... you'd would end up with the message going to both
machines but maybe with a little more though one could eliminate this.

The above item I'm sure WILL NOT WORK as syntax is wrong and I didn't put
a lot of thought to it... you'd probably want to offload it to a shell
script and put some decent thought into how you want to handle bounces and
other things....

just an idea, or you could do it like I do currently on my machine, two
servers (well 3 actually), but just run unison to sync the directories.

Please don't bash me too hard with my logic I just thought of it right now
and I probably forgot something critical which will cause this not to work
as I haven't sat down and thought of every possibility.  Think of this
message more as a brainstorm! :)
