I suggest you read it first...
Quote from NFS_README.html:
# In order to have mailbox locking over NFS you have to configure
# everything to use fcntl() locks for mailbox access (or switch to
# maildir style, which needs no application-level lock controls).
So if you use maildir (which you probably will with a setup like this)
you won't have any problems with NFS at all.
And yes, we run setups like this - with some hundred thousand mails per
day - and never had a problem...
