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
