Hi Steve,

I was wondering if perhaps I might snag a copy of your glusterfs
server/client configs to see what you are doing? I am interested in
using it in our mail setup, but last I tried a little over a month ago
I got a bunch of corrupted mails, so far I am only using for a web
cluster and that seems to be working but different use case I guess.
