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

I'm not sure whether imap is an option at all. As far as I do
understand, the thing with imap is that all mail is permanently stored
on the server and nothing really gets to the client. Thus, if you are in
your LAN, you can access the mail on your stationary server. But as soon
as you pull the plug from the laptop, you wouldn't have a single message
to deal with. And if you fetch mail on the road onto your laptop, you
won't get that to your stationary.

I may be wrong, please correct me if so.


I am not using them but I thought that offline folders keep a local copy
of your IMAP folders.


That was my impression too.  I may well be wrong.  But the idea is have
the imap server containing the master copy of everything, and somehow
sync the laptop with the desktop when it's back on the LAN.

You can always move the mail you received in the road to the IMAP
