What mail program are you using on the Palm? I suspect that if it runs on the
main memory, it will expect inbox data to reside in main memory as well. I
don't happen to use a Mac as my synchronisation platform and it seems as if
messing about with the menu option is the best one can do.

The other possibility is to identify the file which holds your inbox data and
synchronise it as a plain-text object with your handheld. This is far from
ideal, of course.
