    I don't think you can use the same mail folder with them.

    However, you can set them to leave the mail on the server for x amount of days. Then, both of them should be up to date (as long as you check email within those x amount of days per OS). Put it at a time when you know you'll be checking email on the OS, but not long enough to max out your email storage quota.

    That's what I did when I was using multiple email agents (in different locations).

    That is my understanding too.
