Hi all, 

I plan to use OfflineIMAP in a setup where emails gets expired to an archive 
maildir directory. I don't want this archive to be copied over to the IMAP, 
just stay locally. 

In my local directory I created an a maildir folder called 'Archive'. This 
doesn't get copied over to the IMAP server, which is fine and exactly how I 
want it. However, is there a risk that future versions of OfflineIMAP either 
copies it over (along with its contents) to the IMAP server or even deletes it 
from my localdir?

I also use the excellent script/setup mentioned here:

I was thinking I should add 'Archive' to the folderfilter list as a precaution, 
would that make things futureproof?
