.mac/mail syncing issue

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
i have .mac and use Mail on my iMac (Tiger). Recently I created a user on my fiancee's iBook (Panther) and in so doing set Mail up to pull from the @mac.com email address. It pulled down the 1000 + emails I've saved, marked unread. But then when I went back on .mac through the browser at work AND when I went to use my iMac, I only had the 30 or so email's I'd gotten since having created the account under my username on the iBook. I did not (until last night) have .mac sync my bookmarks, etc. with the iBook. Those took fine, but Mail still showed the messages I'd read on the iMac in the intervening days as "unread". Also, since I have done the syncing on the iBook I have not used the iMac.

So first, 1) how do I get those 1000+ messages back into Mail on my iMac? and 2) what am I missing here, shouldn't the mailboxes be syncing completely? Does it randomly have anything to do with the fact I'm using Panther on one and Tiger on the other? To my understanding it shouldn't.

Any and all help is appreciated.
