A simple method for securing email
Authored by: rotaiv on Jul 01, '05 06:42:46AM

I have four machines all checking the same mailboxes via POP. I simply have three of the clients configured to "leave mail on server".

I then configured the client on my main desktop (where all my mail is archived) to delete mail after 2 weeks. This gives the other three machines enough time to download their copy of the mail before it is deleted by my desktop.

Your original mail content starts the same across the systems. The state however, is not the same. If you move a message from folder A to B on machine A, systems B,C,and D are unaffected. The _state_ of your mail is not in sync across the machines, it is nearly there.
