About 90% of your problem is already solved here, you are using cyrus 
which has built in mail level replication. All you need to do is setup a 
lvm volume away from this main store and run your mail replica over to 
it. then just backup using whatever tools you want.

Free win you get is online failover, backup in whatever manner you want!
