Thanks.   I see Unison is available as a .deb and I've just installed it on 
both machines.

It looks as if that could be the optimum solution for my setup.   All I need to 
do now (after I've debugged why not all the emails in 'new' subdirectories 
are showing up as 'unread') is do a one-time copy of the entire Maildir tree 
to my laptop and thereafter, periodically keep it synced with Unison.   
Hopefully.

Regards

Chris
