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.
