Anyone using portable home directories in Lion yet?


Just set up a test account on a Lion Server/Lion Client.  Syncing seems to be working fine but everytime I switch computers, Mail freaks out and returns:


"Your mail index has been damaged.  To repair it, quit Mail"  After 'reloading' my mailboxes, it works fine...until I switch computers again.  Mail is standard IMAP to a gmail account.


Anybody else seeing this?

    Just wondering, what is the difference between "Partial Path" and "Full Path"?


    I tried your solution but unfortunately does not work.


    I have an IMAP account - which is excluded by default Lion Server rules - and a disabled POP account. Everytime I sync between 2 computers I have the problem.


    Is it still working on your side?
