First you should identify what is your bottleneck. Is it postfix? I
don't think so, because receiving+storing emails use very little
resources (maybe something for regexp checks and bandwidth/latency for
RBLs). IMAP/POP3 can use some disk + CPU for sorting emails. But
usually the bottleneck is antivirus/antispam. So until you get disk
bottleneck I think one server for smtp + pop3/imap is enough and you
can use many servers for antivir/antispam. Which solution do you use?
Does it permit to define alternative hosts for antivir/antispam?
