Can I run a local cross platform imap server ?

I used to store my local e-mails in .PST files - Now that I'm using more than one computer regularly, dropbox isn't syncing as well as it used to (It's more of an outlook issue than dropbox...).
What I'm thinking of is replacing PST storage with local IMAP servers running on each machine, with a standard file based storage format.
Ideally, one that runs both on Mac and Windows, and I can put storage in my dropbox so that it syncs between the two.
The things that are important to me:
- I need to keep using outlook
- I spend large portion of my time offline, so I don't want to have to be connected to an online server
- I want all my computers to be in sync
Does such a thing exists ? Is there a better way of achieving this ?
