I have been off the list for a few days and missed this discussion. We
have 3 E-Mail servers, 2 of which are backup MX's and 1 master, I wrote a
small chkuser-style-server on the master server and a chkuser-style-client
for both the MX's. This for us works perfectly and no files have to be
migrated from the master to the backup's.
The server is very simple (it does not actually use chkuser, but just
chkuser style functionality), and the client communicates with this server
to validate destination addresses. The client is called using a
qmail-check-recipient patch (not sure where it came from, I might have
even written it).
It may be possible to write the server to use chkuser and have clients on
the relay machines.
