<span id="mailbox-conversation"><div>Honestly I'm not sure. I just noticed offlineimap telling me it was syncing messages from my local Maildir back to the remote server (Gmail), and all the message numbers are negative.

Ran offlineimap all day and it hasn't seemed to do anything nefarious yet, though. Just wanted to get a little more clarification on what's going on.</div></span><div class="mailbox_signature">
