I'm trying to take some load off a busy mail server by exporting out all
the maildirs over NFS, and then getting vpopmail/courier pop/courier imap
to read those maildirs from an NFS client.
However, from time to time, I'm noticing "stale NFS handle" errors, which
result in the IMAP server saying a file doesn't exist...even though it
does. Refreshing the IMAP connection makes it go away. Anyone know enough
about NFS to suggest how this error could be made go away ?
I've a feeling it's related to NFS timeouts, but I thought by default
they were infinite...
