    i intend to use a third party dns service, and have a backup of some important domains on another virtual hosting server (with ssh). so if i get rsync to backup these domains to the backup server, will all the user details of these domains be backed up? When i say user details, i mean, his mailbox password, mail forwarding setting etc. If he changes his password, will that info also be reflected at the backup server (by rsync), so that in case, the primary server is not available, i i can point the domain to the backup server (using third party dns), and the user should not even know that he is checking his mail on the backup server.

    anybody already running something like this out here? help appreciated.
