Use AppleScript to synchronize Entourage mail
Authored by: sfgecko on Jul 23, '04 02:56:06PM

sounds like you're doing a lot of unnecessary work to replicate your email in two diff machines. one solution is to just use an IMAP email account (instead of POP), where your email is always stored on the server and can be accessed via multiple email clients. also, you can synch w/ an IMAP account so that an offline copy of the email is on your local machine so you can read it while not connected to the internet (just like POP).

this is what i use:

i've set up apple mail, entourage, and thunderbird w/ IMAP and they all work fine. in addition, you can access your email via your browser in case you're on a computer that doesn't have an email client set up to access your account.

Yes, I've thought about IMAP but that's only for mails, isn't it? I need the calendar synchronized as well.

I also thought of IMAP when I first read this hint (or clicking the "leave copy of message on server" option in a POP account), but yeh, that won't sync Contacts, Calendars, Notes, To Do etc.
