I take my laptop to work everyday, so I switch between my wifi
connection at home, and the one at work. Most of the time after I get to
the other side I get the following error from offlineimap:
ERROR: Could not resolve name 'imap.gmail.com' for repository 'xxx-remote'. Make sure you have configured the server name correctly and that you are online.
However when I try to debug, I find that I can ping the mail server:
PING gmail-imap.l.google.com (18.104.22.168) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from ig-in-f109.1e100.net (22.214.171.124): icmp_seq=1 ttl=47 time=27.5 ms
This is rather bad, because if I run offlineimap using systemd I am not
aware of this problem, and I receive no new mail.
