Noticed offlineimap failing with
ERROR: Server SSL fingerprint
'6d1b5b5ee0180ab493b71d3b94534b5ab937d042' for hostname
'imap.gmail.com' does not match configured fingerprint. Please verify
and set 'cert_fingerprint' accordingly if not set yet.
I have in my .offlineimaprc
Repeated attempts to connect only succeed if I set maxconnections = 1.
With maxconnections = 5 I see the above error popping up halfway the
(different threads hit different certs, I suppose).
Is it a genuine hacking attempt going on, or some misconfiguration somewhere?
Any easy way to gather extra info on these connections?
(I program in Python, but I have no time to read and modify
offlineimap, at least not now...)
