# replication plugin¶

## replication-plugin¶

### mail_replica¶

This parameter for the mail_replica plug-in indicates the location for replication. This example gives a sense of its use:

Example Setting:

mail_replica = remote:vmail@targethost.example.com


### replication_sync_timeout¶

When a new mail message is saved via IMAP or a message is being delivered via LDA/LMTP, the system waits this amount of time for the mail to be synced to the remote site. If it doesn’t finish after this timeout, a status of success is indicated anyway.

Example Setting:

replication_sync_timeout = 2s
