[Q] Mail spool dir okay over nfs?


Is it completely safe to use, say, elm, to process the /var/spool/mail
directory over nfs in Debian 1.3.1?  I know at some time there was a
problem with different locking conventions resulting in lost or
scrambled mailboxes; have they been long resolved?

The host runs sendmail, or sometimes smail, and the client will use
elm or mail to read/delete email.
