I've delivered email directly into AFS and it seems to work for a small
number of users. I understand that problems arise from hosting many
mailboxes and the number of callbacks to clients when files /
directories get updated with new mail.
Do you intend to have an SMTP server write directly to AFS? Or end-user
run clients write downloaded email into AFS?
