I am having a problem with netscape on our FreeBSD machines.

Currently, we use Sun Sparcstations running Solaris for our file
servers. The users are all running FreeBSD and automounting their home
directories from the Sun's. 

A problem is encountered with Netscape. The users can receive their mail
just fine. However, when they try send send mail, the get an NFS file
locking error.

Right now all of the user are popping remote shells from the Sun's and
running Netscape. This technique although it works, wastes valuable
bandwidth and slows the overall performance of Netscape.

Has anyone seen or resolved this problem?
