In a cluster, if your mailfile on the server you're working on has trouble or is slow/unavailable, it should always fail you over.

If you don't have transaction logging enabled (and even sometimes if you do), there are pretty common situations where if a server crashes and comes back up, your mail may need to be consistency checked (or other things may be going on that keep it from responding.).
If your mail is not available due to consistency checking or slowness (Network operation did not complete in a reasonable amount of time....), you should be offered to fail over to a cluster-mate.
Maybe it's fixed somewhere, but I've seen this NOT work correctly using an 8.5.1 client....

FWIW, I have just seen this exact scenario in a VMware situation where vmware was "removing a snapshot" of the Domino server, and the server became so slow that many users were getting "Network operation did not complete in a reasonable amount of time...." errors.

Domino 8.5.1FP1 server w/ 8.5.1, 8.0.2, 7.0.2 clients.

They should have been failed over, but were not.

Great idea
