last night i had to take a shower over at tzel's due to the water thing. oh, i was pissed. thank goodness for the graciousness of tzel!! i then proceeded to make super-awesome jambalaya as well as level 49 in dark age.

today i made it up to baltimore to face the dude that totaled my car back in aught 2. i didn't have to say a thing and there's a judgement against him and his license will be revoked (how the hell does he have one in MD with no insurance anyways???) and if he pays up (unlikely as his mom was there pleading how he doesn't have a job) i get my deductible back. he'll probably just go on driving... anyways i was glad not to have to testify. note to self: getting to b'more from home is much easier than getting to dc. i got there an hour early. :)

OK so here is my TECHnical question: is there a simple way to set up so that my sent emails will end up in the sent-mail box on two servers when I send it? I'm sure I could bcc my second account by way of archiving, but I would rather they end up in the sent-mail folder automatically than the other inbox.

And now I leave you with a PSA from 1995:

Everybody stutters one way or the other
So check out my message to you.
As a matter of fact don't let nothin' hold you back.
If the Scatman can do it so can you.

I love that song.

I was listening to that song on my car stereo this morning, and it's been echoing in my head since.

OH! The Scatman! 26thstreet and I used to showboat around Ocean City listening to that tune, when we lived there in '96. I gotta download it tonight.

I actually STILL have the cd single of that song from when I was a DJ at WCCN in 95. Sometimes I still listen to it, even.

Okay, that second part is a lie. But the rest is true.

You don't need insurance to get a driver's license; only to register a vehicle. Its the car that's insured, not the driver (though insurance companies do everything they can to make you pay for the driver too)

is there a simple way to set up so that my sent emails will end up in the sent-mail box on two servers when I send it?

Yes, but a pain in the butt. You'd want to Bcc everything over to the other machine and then use a rule that checks for a header unique to the sending machine (possibly an extra X-Header that says "from me"). You could also just move the entry into sent if it's from you, but that may be less accurate.

There may be a better way, depending on your actual goal. I solve this problem by storing all my sent mail on the IMAP server and then connecting to the same IMAP server from different places. I use two IMAP servers; one for work and one for personal, all within Thunderbird.

That is the exact same set up that I have. It's pretty groovy.

I think I like Vileone's suggestion. It wouldn't be hard to set up a procmail rule for this at all, now that I think about it some more. Set up the Bcc in thunderbird (multiple addresses separated by commas if necessary) and then have procmail look for messages that are From: you, but not To: or Cc: you.
