I'm currently trying to populate a new Maildir by duplicating the
contents of an existing IMAP account using offlineimap 6.2.0.
Unfortunately, the running sync often terminates with offlineimap
exceptions for various reasons. (Obvious connectivity problems as well
as exceptions of which I do not know the exact reason.)
When restarted, offlineimap starts to copy a lot of the already
downloaded mails back to the server, which a) causes tons of duplicates
and b) will never let me finish the sync... :-/
Is there any way to make offlineimap correctly recognize the mails it
already has downloaded to stop it from pushing the massages back to the
The server is running dovecot 1.0.15 from Debian Lenny.
