Thanks for the reply, I’ve upgraded to and edited my as the previous respondent suggested, and now as far as
I can tell the flags are being synced as appropriate.

I feel I should say that your line “6.4.x is truly borked” frightens me
because offlineimap has always boasted being incredibly safe, in terms
of not accidentally deleting stuff, so for an entire version to be
broken knocks my confidence somewhat.

Thanks again.
