My ~/Mail directory is from the time when I experimented with nnml and
mail-sources (POP3).

Oh! BTW, I still use nnml for local cron jobs. Any idea, how these are
going to be sync’ed? I guess, if I am careful with the up-sync/down-sync
things then it will be ok; as you have mentioned below.

Any specific options to rsync that might add to the comfort? Or is it
just okay to ‘rsync <src> <dest>’?
