	Sharing e-mail over NFS is always troublesome.  A better division 
of labour is to have the webserver/mailing list manager on one 
machine, and have it dump all its outbound mail on a mail-only server 
that is configured to handle that load well for a large mailing list.

	Better yet, use a whole cluster of outbound machines.
