I admit I'm being lazy here! Is there a simple solution to having your email switch fairly painlessly between your "main" Mac and your "backup" Mac for a few days, and then back again?

This probably isn't what you're looking for, but in Mail on my PowerBook (secondary machine), I have my accounts set to leave incoming mail on the server. That way, I can access mail from my laptop and still retrieve it later from my iMac (primary machine), so I can keep everything in one place.

But I suspect you're looking for something a little more clever, like transferring a copy of the underlying mail database between machines. I don't know about that.
