I want to access the same mails from both my laptop computer and my
desktop computer. I can do this with naive copying if I always
synchronize before I inc, refile, send, &c, but that often requires a good
internet connection, and it is too easy for the synchronization to
accidentally not happen and thus to lead to filename conflicts.
Are there any very good ways of using mail between two computers?

Two easy things I thought of

* Use separate folders for the separate computers
  (+laptop/inbox, +laptop/outbox, +desktop/inbox, +desktop/outbox)
  and write wrappers that make the typing less verbose.
* Patch nmh so that you can configure a different modulus for each
  computer. New files will be numbered only as multiples of this
  modulus. In my case, for example, I could use odd numbers for the
  desktop and even numbers for the laptop
