You can use data files from Windows partition directly; I configured Wine to have a drive that maps to my Bootcamp volume, then pointed agent at the INI file I use on Windows. So I have the same configuration and email (etc.) on Windows and Mac OS X, just like I always wanted.
What does not
What was not tested
I'm using the MacPorts edition of wine. Despite the annoyances, Agent is quite usable, and I for one find them only minor compared to the hassles of changing email program. I feel the UI problems are enough to stop it getting a Gold, as the UI is fairly important for email. The underlying functionality has so far seemed trouble-free, though.
