I know, this is somewhat Off Topic, but is GMail via IMAP also rather
slow for you from time to time? I'm on a very well connected server
"somewhere in the 'net", and it seems it takes forever to download/archive
my GMail to local Maildir. It's just about 1.5 GB with no more than
20.000 mails, and it's now downloading for about a day... With the
multithread stuff from Offlineimap, it isn't as bad, but still. SLOW… :/
