I'm not providing personal consulting services.  Taking this back to the

Please allow me to quote the man page:

       Here are some example configurations for various situations.  Please e-
       mail any other examples you have that may be useful to me.

       This  example shows you how to set up OfflineIMAP to synchronize multi-
       ple accounts with the mutt mail reader.

       Start by creating a directory to hold your  folders  by  running  mkdir
       ~/Mail.  Then, in your ~/.offlineimaprc, specify:

       accounts = Personal, Work

       Make  sure  that  you  have  both an [Account Personal] and an [Account
       Work] section.  The local repository for each account must have differ-
       ent localfolder path names.  Also, make sure to enable [mbnames].
