Can someone help me how to use Python 2.7 with offlineimap on Mac OSX?
I had the same problem with "zero length file format"
(offlineimap 6.5.4 from rudix)
I installed Python 2.7 with ActivePython.
/usr/local/bin/python -V is 2.7.2
/usr/bin/python -V is 2.6.1
The latter seems to get used by offlineimap, which still gives the
"zero length file format" error.
It seems I'm not supposed to change /usr/bin/python.
So I tried replacing the shebang in the file /usr/local/bin/offlineimap to:
Now, however, running offlineimap exits with:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/offlineimap", line 20, in <module>
from offlineimap import OfflineImap
ImportError: No module named offlineimap
Any pointers would be great
