I would advice to use an imap server on your linux box.  This makes it
easy to read your linux mail both from your Windows as wel as from
your linux machine without the trouble of having to remember were you
read and stored that one mail you're after.

As I promissed my father to help him switch to linux I've been
examining imap daemons lately.  The one that performs best with both
Mozilla Mail Client and Outlook Express in my limited tests has been
cyrus-imapd.  The disadvantage of this package is that it uses its own
mailbox format.
