    Recently signed up to .mac again because of the new webmail interface and I have a Mac and PC I would like to keep in Sync using IMAP.

    Gmail was great but its POP does not let me retrieve the same message twice to two different machines

    When I send mail using smtp.mac.com using Apple Mail on the mac a copy of the message is stored serverside.:)

    However using Outlook 2002 and Entourage it ISNT despite being delivered OK.:(

    :mad: Its so hard to find an email system that does exactly what I want. Namely allows me to access all my mail on two different machines including what I have sent

    Okay, make sure the sent messages are being saved in the correct folder. In Entourage, go to Accounts in the Tools menu and make sure the Advanced section has the correct folder selected next to Store Sent Messages In This IMAP Folder. It'll be a similar setup in Outlook.

    Also, if you have more than one account in Outlook and Entourage then make sure your sent messages aren't being sent from a different account and subsequently stored in a different Sent Folder. :)
