Sharing the tcp.smtp.cdb file over TCP is not a good idea. Once your traffic starts picking up, you'll have all sorts of problems with that.

Check out the writeup I have on exactly this scenario: smtp_writeup.txt. There are other considerations but to minimize traffic on your backend (NFS) network, you really should be planning to only share what's necessary (~vpopmail/domains) via NFS.

Hello All,

If I'm going to install a couple of mailservers(vpopmail+qmail) and use an
NFS server for storage, is the Maildir the only directory that will be
shared by the mail servers. I think the tcp.smtp.cdb also needs to be
shared. Any others files?
