Aside from rsync?

How about just checking the mail with an IMAP client that [a] knows  
how to synchronize everything on the server, and [b] keeps everything  
in an easy to manage format like mbox.

Eudora is one. Thunderbird might be another (I forget if it uses mbox).

Depending on what you *really* "actually need", this might be a good  
starting point. Or a good ending point, if all you're trying to do  
is, umm, read your mail.
