I intend to do just this on my home machines in a few weeks when I get
time to set up two coda servers.

I am also planning on useing Kerberos5 authentication, and the machine
(possibly machine*s* later on if I get ambitious) delievering mail will
have a 'mail' kerberos principal, and corresponding coda user/group. I'm
going to have a cron job that will update the kerberos tickets (and in
turn, coda tokens) from a kerberos5 keytab file every 12 hours or so.

I currently get around 100-200 messages a day, which are immediately
filtered via procmail patched with 'Maildir' support into one of about 30
folders. (half of my messages are from the linux-kernel mailing list)

I would venture to guess this would amount to some pretty decent 'medium
scale' testing ;)

Any suggestions before I try this? (Yes, I'm going to use procmail to send
duplicate copies of all my non-mailing list mail to another 'regular'
machine when I try this ;) )
