AppleMailFilter: I’d like to synchronize my (non-smart) mailbox folders in Apple’s Mail program to use on two computers without using IMAP folders or iSynch…

I spend roughly equal time working on a Powerbook and an iMac (both running 10.4.3) and would love to be able to synchronize the two-hundred or so mailboxes that I use so that when I transfer a message from my inbox into a folder on one computer, it’ll show up in that mailbox on the other (after some synchronization process). I have a couple of IMAP mailbox folders, but the bulk of the mailboxes are not stored on the server, as I don’t have enough storage space. I have a .Mac account, but again, the contents of the mailboxes far exceed the amount of room I have on my iDisk, and I’d rather not store the mail on a server in the first place. What I’m looking for is a program (or trick!) that will enable the computers to talk to one another and fill in each other’s gaps. The computers will be on the same network (at least when I bring my laptop home) if that makes any difference. Any ideas?
