Ay, rsync is annoying for that part of the sync.

I think 4 should be possible without too much effect for the mirror
network. Thats one run every 6 hours "only".
Now, I would *love* to have hourly runs. Yes, I realize that *currently*
this is no option, thanks to the amount of files rsync has to check.
We need something better here first. I dont know yet what. Maybe the
"batch-mode" from rsync (never really tried it), maybe something totally
different. If someone has good ideas, I'm happy to hear them. (Even if
they go as far as changing the archive structure).
Dessen NOC erklaerte uns aber, dass das Mailproblem nicht an ihnen liegen
koennte der ihr Router habe gar keinen Port 25. Der habe nur 16 Ports.
Also kann Mails nichts mit Port 25 zu tun haben.
