LVS doesn't have any general mechanism for the client to write to realservers
(in this case delete). It is only for reading. You have to solve the writing
problem outside LVS. I don't know how the POP people solve this problem.
The simplest solution (although a bit of a hack) is to have the same mail
spool directory exported to all realservers.
