    I just got a new mbp and well i have not had this problem yet because i only had one computer. Now i have 2 mbp's and i have mobile me and it does not sync the 'on my mac" folders that i have. is there a way to do this. as in i want the folders to be on both macs and to update through mobile me.

    You can't sync the "On my Mac" Mailboxes simply because they are on your Mac, ie: Local folders on that current machine. In order to have them sync you will need to create new mailboxes with the Location set to your Mobile Me account.

    Once you do this and have moved the messages over to these new mailboxes they will then be accessible on both machines.

    Could you please explain in layman's terms the simplest step-by-step way to do this in 10.8.2?

    Would be most helpful.
