    Hello all,

    I just got my second mac, the aluminum macbook, and still am using my iMac (who doesnt match since he is the white guy, boo)

    Anyway, I was wondering if there is a way that I can use Mail on both computers and have the messages, kind of like... sync? So if I read my mail on my laptop and delete some, I would like the mail on my iMac to reflect that. Don't know if this makes any sense, but I hope there is a way to do this.

    Also, my email provider is gmail.

    Thanks for any tips!

    Try setting your mail program up to sync your mail using IMAP (instead of POP). This will leave all of your mail on the server, and your computer will connect to the server and synchronize your local mailbox. This can be set up on as many computers as you like.

    Look at the Gmail help for info on how to configure your client for IMAP.

    Yes, IMAP is the answer you want. It works great for me.
