Well, I am sure you have some reason to setup a cluster. Is it for
failover / redundancy ? or is it for higher performance ? or is it to
distribute load geographically ? distribute load by service ?

You need to first work out what you want to do. What setup and howto set
it up will depend on what you are trying to achieve ( = what problem you
are trying to solve ). However, keep in mind that anything more than
small to small medium setups for mail storage usually end at Cyrus.
