save mail



Hello,

Newbie question:

What would you recommend to save mails. (I don t think it matters but I use postfix, courier-imap)
I ve heard of mail sync for email but don t wanna used this solution to begin.
A backup to a disk would be good for me.

The question I wonder is :
What happen when a cron task is launched and that a mail is about to be delivered.
Is it queued again ?
Or perhaps worse, if a mail is about to be delivered and a cron task (backup task) is starting

More generally, can you explain me the mecanism of locks

I use maildirs but I would like also know how to do for mailboxes


Thanks for reply

Stephane
