I am running gluster with dovecot and postfix on two active/active 
servers and it is working relatively OK.

Sometimes I get an index corrupted message in the mail.err log, but it's 
nothing serious. I've had an issue once when files were marked as bad 
and got tons of input/output errors, but I managed to solve it by 
removing the files from the background storage on one node and deleting 
extented attributes on the other node.
