I need some suggestions on a setup...Designing LDAP network structure

Hello everyone.

Well, I was hoping to get some feedback from some of the LDAP gurus here on
a particular setup I may try and setup. I think it could really work, but
im not sure how to go about doing it.

Let me explain.

Currently, im running a samba PDC with OpenLDAP 2.0.27 on the backend to
hold user accounts (using idealx scripts as well.)

It have also setup a Postfix mail server for our company usage. Here I did
not setup LDAP but instead used just normal UNIX accounts in conjunction
with postfix and courier-imap.

Management has just told me that they want to be able to save all users
mail on a seperate server, instead of the mail being stored locally as well
as on the main mail server. 

With that in mind, I thought about using NFS to share the drive and allow
each user to save their mail onto the NFS server.

My question is, how, or what type of setup could I use in that I could use
LDAP for authentication for the storage server?

Im trying to think and design a way to use LDAP more on my network.
Anyone out here have any suggestions on what I can do and how to design

I am open to all suggestions and would like to hear all ideas.
I have ideas, but im not sure how to implement this.

I eagerly await ideas on this.
