I have two Macs with the same user account cloned on both. The UNIX shortname is the same on both so that the file permissions will play nice when using firewire target disk mode for manual copying and syncing with ChronoSync. However when I tried using Apple mail on both machines to access the same IMAP account, it would split the emails between both. Some emails would download to one Mac and some would download the other. Is there a way around this?? Currently my workaround is to have gmail forward all my mail to a second account. This is not ideal, because when people respond to emails sent from the Mac that uses the secondary account, then those replies only go to that Mac but not the other! So is there any way to just use one IMAP account with two Macs that have the same shortname, and NOT have it split up the emails that go to each? I am willing to ditch gmail, if there's another IMAP service where this problem does not occur. Thanks, -=DG=- PS -- I'm on the latest 10.6.x.
