Email on two computers?

I’ve got a new laptop on the way—and I was wondering, for all you folks who have a desktop and a laptop, how do you deal with email?

I’d like to be able to be able to read and send email from both computers without going through the hassle of copying files across.

One possibility I’m considering is running pine or mutt on my desktop, and ssh’ing in to my desktop from the laptop. But then I would miss out on the utility of being able to have two message windows open. And I’d not be able to sleep my desktop when I’m using my laptop.

It should be noted that I have a POP account.

So—if you’re in this situation, what do you do?
