    Because that would make it once again, insecure. :)

    NFS is based on the RPC protocol, which is plain old text. Very old
    stuff...
    However, there is secure RPC now. Check into NFS+ if NFS is your thing.

    Why not just NFS-mount the directory where their Maildirs live? Have
    pine
    read the Maildirs directly as local files. (This is automagical if you
    have Maildir/ in $HOME where it belongs....)
