There's also the possibility that other people use offlineimap without
I am running offlineimap every 5 minutes using a cronjob. It checks for
an internet connection and already running instances so that it never
runs twice (although it also has internal checks, but better safe than
sorry). I use the -o option, to make offlineimap quit after one sync.
Additionally I use the option
socktimeout = 120
in my offlineimaprc to ensure that it dies if the socket is silent for 2
minutes. This configuration is running without any major trouble for a
couple of years now.
