Well, that's another way of doing it, but it has a distinct
disadvantage:  every message, however trivial, will now take up
bandwidth transferring to another server, even if the message was left
"correctly" for the right person on the right server.  The solution I'm
working on will deliver only the messages which need to be put on the
remote machine.
