I've got a mailserver with sendmail and mailscanner, which is getting a bit

I'm using the setup where one sendmail daemon drops the mail in
.../, mailscanner takes the mail from there and drops it in
.../mqueue, where another sendmail daemon picks it up and sends it out.

Is it possible to share the and mqueue dirs over nfs with other
so I can have several mailscanners working on the same diretories without
they are trying to process the same files?

Or could I make a program which periodically moved mailfiles from one server
to another?
