If it's the only way to go, then yes, I would consider it. How would
that work? Would I run an NFS client on the billing server? Or would
I log in via rsh from the billing server to the mail server? That last
choice solves the overhead of starting an encrypted connection, but
you've still got the overhead of starting a remote shell. I'd rather just
have a dedicated remote shell.
