Looks fine to me.

I used mailsync for a little while, but I found it to be pretty
half-baked. If you have access to the filesystem on your
workstation, which I assume you do, I think rsync would work much
Install rsync on both computers, and then a command resembling:
rsync --archive --verbose workstation:"~/Mail" ~/
should do what you want. It would mirror an exact copy of your
mailbox files, keeping the flags and stuff in place, and would be more
efficient than a scp.
If you wish to synchronize both ways, throw in an "--update" flag and
do another rsync with the host and destination swapped.
Also, I recommend going over ssh:
