Hi all,


I've recently retired Office 2004 (and hence Entourage) as part of my migration to Lion, although my primary workstation is still a PPC running 10.4.11. I have 3 other Macs I sometimes use (now all Lion)  and prior to the migration to Mail I had put my "Office Identities" file in my DropBox folder with an alias pointing to the usual location. Thus whenever I logged on to one of the other Macs DropBox would sync the "Office Identities" folder and voila all my mail was synced and I could use Entourage with a current set of mail files.


With Mail I've tried a similar thing with ~/Library/Mail/ folder but Mail seems to hate an alias and tries to start from scratch.


What do other people here do?





17" Powerbook G4, MacBook Pro 15", G4 500MHz, Mac OS X (10.4.11), Extensive AirPort network (4 x express, 1 x extreme), AirDisk SA
