Hi list,

First of all, congrats for offlineiamp -it's a cool tool !

However, I may have a bug to report, but before doing so, I would like to
double check with you if this is not a simple configuration issue. So here
my current set up:

$ offlineimap --version
$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Fedora release 15 (Lovelock)
$ mutt -v
Mutt 1.5.21 (2010-09-15)

My issue is the following : even if my configuration states "readonly =
false" any change done to the local directory is NOT sync with the remote
mail server. Here my config:

[Repository redhat-mailserver]
type = IMAP
remotehost =
ssl = yes
remoteport = 993
remoteuser = rpelisse
remotepass = **********
maxconnections = 1
holdconnectionopen = no
expunge = yes
subscribedonly = no
readonly = False

When I ran offlineimap in debug mode a message clearly state - despite the
above configuration "Not sync emails as repository is readonly" (this is
not the exact message, I write this from memory).

As I have a complete different client to get my emails on my mobile - which
can move mail around successfully, I must conclude that the issue is not
the remote server forbidding clients to do so...

Any advice on how I could confirm this or workaround the issue ?

Thanks !
