Initially I was able to deliver through the second option (the storage has
some server running) through lmtp and port 24.

But now the requirement is like the option one( using NFS, iSCSI,etc). Two
queries regarding this first option:-
1) Its not like delivering to a different location, I feel. It is like
sharing the emails to a different storage. How it will work when
mailserver's storage fills up while that remote storage will still have
lots of space.

2) Is this option mainly used in large scale emailing systems like a
university emailing system, etc.
