I'm struggling with the upgrade from 6.3.4 to 6.5.4.
First I ran into the SSL-fingerprint-checking problem, this one was easy
Then I ran into the createfolders feature and added a reverse nametrans
option, which needed a bit of research but I quickly found the docs.
The next problem was that offlineimap was trying to create the empty /
default folder on the remote side which I tried to sidestep by filtering
it - should also work for now.
The latest problem I ran into and which caused my to give up for now and
downgrade again is that offlineimap now tries to re-upload all mails
which are already synced and removes the previously existing remote
copies afterwards. This isn't fun if your maildir is several GB in
I'm syncing a remote dovecot server against a local maildir which also
is in a format understood by a local dovecot server.
,----[ Relevant parts of my .offlineimaprc ]
| [Repository Local]
| type = Maildir
| localfolders = ~/Maildir
| nametrans = lambda foldername: foldername[1:]
| [Repository Remote]
| type = IMAP
| nametrans = lambda foldername: '.' + foldername
So I add a leading dot to the remote folder name and remove it again
when reading the local maildir.
What am I doing wrong - searching the net I could not find any reports
about similar problems?
I'm a bit at a loss here, pointers to fine manuals, if existing, are
very much appreciated - maybe I missed some essential piece of
