At present I use several PC's at home and send/receive mail from each. My wife and children do like wise. A major headache is our inability to sync our ISP mail accounts across these machines. We don't/won't use mobile me, just our ISP mail accounts and hotmail. Bearing in mind OS X server is due to ship with Lion, is it possible to use mail server, and set up one of our (future) macs as a home mail server which would get and send the mail for us, allowing us to have mail synced across all the macs that we are due to buy ? Any insight would be appreciated Don't you just hate it when you search for a thread that might answer your question, you don't find one so you post your question, and then after you post you search again and find a relevant thread Just found this discussion IMAP Server is the answer But I'm still a little confused. I'm currently using Outlook and I understand leaving messages on the server until I delete them but what I would like is to see mail that I send on PC-A to be seen in the sent box on PC-B. From the thread above it seems that this can be done so I'll wait until I purchase the macs in the next month and then post again once I have explored the issue a little more.
