Re: [Evolution] Synchronising laptop and desktop evolutions

I have a similar setup.  What I do is set the Evolution client on my
laptop to "Leave Mail on Server" whenever it checks.  Then when I get
home and use my desktop system, the messages are still waiting at the
POP server.  I see duplicates, but that's OK.

Before I go anywhere with the laptop, I just either scp or rsync the
local/ sub-folder from desktop to laptop to pick up any changes since
the last time I used the laptop.

The only drawback is that mail I send from the laptop gets destroyed.  I
suppose I could work some sort of back-sync, but I'm really not that
worried about it (I like to CC: myself on anything important anyway).

I have a laptop and desktop both running evolution 1.4.5.

I require to synchronise information between the 2 systems.

Guenther pointed me towards multisync

This will not work properly (compilation/installation issues) for me,
and the response from the multisync community has been a deafening

I have decided to drop multisync, and in casting about have run across
references to imap.

I am a total bewbie as far imap is concerned.  If someone could answer
my basic questions, or point me towards a document that will cover these
questions, I would be grateful.

I am thinking that my 'base' system will be my desktop, and that will
run an imap server which I can use when the laptop is connected to my
lan to synchronise my email folders.

Is this feasible, will this allow the synchronisation of contacts and
calendar information for instance?

Thanks, I would like to get as much info as possible before plunging
into the murky depths.
