When the conflicts are "ReadConfictError"s, then my
"Snapshot Isolation" patch may help you.

When the conflicts are (write) "ConflictError"s, then
application specific conflict resolution might reduce
the probability of Conflicts.

You must not expect to get rid of all (write) "ConflictError"s.

If this *MUST* not happen, you cannot use your current system...

You can probably make your non-transactional system transactional
very easily. Jens (Vagenpohl, maybe slightly misspelled) has
a transactional mailhost drop in. Analysing it, will give
you some hints how to proceed with your system.
