Hello Konrad, list,
Sorry to dig up an old thread -- I was just wondering if you got
anywhere with this? I find myself in a similar position -- I just got
latest offlineimap and it refuses to sync my Japanese folder names, with
ERROR: While attempting to sync account 'DPWright'
'%' must be followed by '%' or '(', found: '%4%_H"\x1b(B'
I have the same utf7.py script mentioned in the article you linked .
I narrowed it down to commit 1c0c19a (imaplib2: bump to upstream
version 2.28 (rev 8228a0f), 2011-08-15), so I don't know whether the
problem lies within offlineimap or in the imaplib2 library it uses.
For now I don't have time to look into it myself so I'm just going to
check out and build an older version. I may take another look when I
find a minute, since it would be nice to be up-to-date, but I thought
I'd drop a note on the list for now, just in case anybody more familiar
with the code knows what to do with it.
