Man! You’ll need more than a syncing solution to go through your day. Back to the drawing board.

I think running a mail server with a DL would work best...unless there’s some sort of “app for that” add on that’s already been developed.

Like they say smart people don’t remember stuff they can look up, this leaves storage space in the brain to for critical thinking.
See, SEE! I told you it wasn't ineptitude! I'm smart! Hello ... er ... helllooooo?

The basic thing you can do is flag mail (sometimes called follow-up) as it comes in and then a smart filter that looks for flagged mail. Only remove the flag when it has been fully actioned. In OWA you use rules to add categories (coloured flags), likewise in Mac mail.

I'm pretty sure the Mac mail flags were visible in different Macs using the same home IMAP account.

I think @fredbert is onto something here. What about forwarding email based on rules. Not sure if this is possible with the usual clients (maybe a mail app)
When an email arrives from such and such, forward a copy to the Mrs for example.
Is that possible?

And add a message at the top, such like: "I'll let you sort this out..."

Ehm, I think this thread is going in the right direction :p
Let’s sleep on it and see if we can come up with something.

I briefly setup a forward based on a rule to test. It would accomplish the objective for some, but not all cases. When an email comes in subject ‘statement from landscaper’ it’s then forwarded to her. Potential problem with this is the numerous forwards with attachments filled up the sent folder with attachment used storage space.

Do you get that many bills and attachments?! Are you living in Buckingham palace?!
Rhetorical question. Ignore.

And I thought we nailed it (I've actually hung my hammer back) and was about to call for a cookies celebration at the lounge :(

Looks like you're going to activate plan B. The "install Mail Server" plan. God have mercy on all of us.

Is this in Gmail? I used that for years and there weren't any sent copies. Create a filter and then forward to one of your registered mail addresses. It's more of a redirect than a forward.

If you have the option in whatever mail client you use to use redirect mail rather than forward then use redirect. What OS and client are you using?

@SynoMan, staff member, administrator, moderator,

Gerard wants a filter to forward from certain senders and not to have sent copies in the sent folder for these forwards or redirects (need copies in sent folder for everything else).

Can this em client super duper thingy do that?

It’s not much, and something that’s probably no big deal. It’s just weighing pros and cons

Sorry, I've read it too quickly I guess...

I think it's possible if you create a rule like that:
263



Haven't tested. That client is free for two accounts, so you maybe someone can test it.

You actually are probably correct on this. I setup the forward address yesterday. Next is to create a test filter and send from another email account. I think I’m now vaguely recalling that there IS NOT a sent copy kept.

What are the negatives/disadvantages/hardships with running your own mailserver?
