Well, I like the features of AFS, however, the scenario is this, I have
a single mail server for webmail, IMAP maildirs, spam filtering, virus
scanning etc.

This mailbox is getting loaded, primarily through IMAP access. I need to
spread the IMAP folders out, so that one of 5 (more or less) front line
mail servers can talk to one of a number of file servers.

What software would your recommend for this?
