I've read that thread. I'm not seeing any lock file errors, I'm not
running over NFS but rather using dovecot's own replication for the mail
store, and I'm not using pop3. I'm also not seeing the mails
_downloaded_ again but rather reappear on the server after they have
been removed: I can watch the message disappear from one server and then
be replaced.

I've looked at the documentation for Director and while it looks nice, I
don't see how it relates to my problem, as it seems to be for
shared-storage deployments. I have tested this with a mail client that's
connecting to only one node - this is a test service, and so that one
imap connection is the only client.
