Since then I've figured out another better way to do it, basically keeping a local cache of mails/indexes and somewhat lazily uploading the indexes to storage. I've also since then figured out that only selling support doesn't work well enough for my Dovecot company. So we're just about ready to start selling object storage plugin for Dovecot, which supports all kinds of backends. Not Cassandra yet though, but could be added at some point. http://www.dovecot.fi/products/
