postfix clustering

Hello,

I want to use postfix for active/active mode.

Here is my dns settings:

mycompany.com MX 10 first.mycompany.com
mycompany.com MX 10 second.mycompany.com

"first" and "second" machine are located in the different physical location

I have two issues here:

1) where should I point my pop server?
If I point to first.mycompany.com, any mails received in second.mycompany.com cannot be viewed?

2) is there a better way to synchronize the mails in first and second mail server? it will be good if one server is down and there is no disruption.

I checked the documentation regarding the setup for postfix for multiple mx records, but I am not sure how these two problems can be solved.

thanks a lot for the help in advance.

Peter
