Hi in your quote listed below, am i right in guessing that the servers will be setup as a mirror of the main ISPConfig machine.
So does that mean that I have to set them up this way when the ISPConfig main server is first setup, what if I want to add another server later ?
If I have already had the main ISPConfig machine running for some time and it has email accounts etc, then can I still add another email server as you have described.
Thanks your help is appreciated.

The ISPConfig setup must be:

1) Create the master server. Make sure that the directory /var/vmail is on a shared medium that all servers can access e.g. a cluster filesystem like glusterfs or a SAN or a NFS server.
2) Create as many slave servers as you need. the /var/vmail directory must be the same shared network drive that you used on the master server. Ispconfig has to be installed on these servers in expert mode, select yes when the installer asks if you want to join a mster server. Select 'n' when you were asked to install the ispconfig interface on the slaves.
3) Login to ispconfig on the master server, go to the server settings and edit the settings for every slave server and select the master server in the "Is mirror of" option field and select save. Ispconfig will then replicate all email user settings to all slave servers automatically.
