are you doing this for compliance? or just for fun?
if its compliance, i'd use an overpriced system. it saves a lot of
if not, coming from an exim world, i've seen the following approaches:
a_ run servers a and b
a is what people smtp and imap to
a takes smtp and relays to b which sends and archives
b is the mx, archives, then relays to a for delivery to imap boxes
in this setup, your users only deal with a, and you get offsite
backup (ie , compliance) at b
b_ run server a
run a 'filter' on outgoing messages that just saves them to a
similar account dir as the mailstore, but under a different root ( ie
MaildirArchiveSent vs Maildir )
deliver incoming messages 2x using the 'unseen' directive, once to
the user Maildir, and once to a MaildirArchiveIncoming
