Hello offlineimap people

I'm new to offlineimap, and have been trying to get it to synchronise 
two IMAP accounts properly.  It nearly works, except that new local 
emails don't get copied to the remote server.

My .offlineimaprc is something like the following.  Have I missed something?

metadata = ~/.offlineimap
accounts = Test
maxsyncaccounts = 1
ui = Basic
ignore-readonly = no
statuschar = @
[Account Test]
localrepository = LocalIMAP
remoterepository = RemoteExample
[Repository LocalIMAP]
type = IMAP
remotehost = localhost
remoteuser = chris
remotepass = pppppp
folderfilter = lambda foldername: 1
[Repository RemoteExample]
type = IMAP
remotehost =
ssl = yes
remoteuser = uuu
remotepass = ppp
maxconnections = 2
holdconnectionopen = yes
keepalive = 60
subscribedonly = no
folderfilter = lambda foldername: 1
readonly = False

I'm running 6.3.4rc4 from github.
