Hi all,

I want to use offlineimap to bidirectionally sync my gmail account and
my local Dovecot server.  Now I have downloaded the mails from Gmail
server.  But after deleting some mails on Dovecot, I can't sync these
operations back to Gmail.

I use Emacs & Mew as MUA in Debian sid.  Here is my rcfile:

accounts = GmailAccount

[Account GmailAccount]
localrepository = Local
remoterepository = Remote

[Repository Local]
type = Maildir
localfolders = ~/Maildir/dochang at gmail.com
sep = /

[Repository Remote]
type = Gmail
remoteuser = dochang at gmail.com
realdelete = True
readonly = False

Is there anything wrong?  Please let me know.  Thank you.
