In addition to what's been said, I would recommend a combination of a
local dovecot server, accessed via localhost, and isync (the executable
is called "mbsync") for syncing it to your remote server. If your remote
server also happens to be dovecot, you can use dovecot's own dsync
program to do the syncing.
