I suspect that blowing away ~/.offlineimap will solve this problem. Be
aware, however, that you will get duplicates of any messages that were
It is possible to blow away a smallar subset of that directory, but
could be difficult to do without losing mail.
Normally OfflineIMAP will detect the existance of a folder on the
destination, I would hope, but it may not be seeing it due to the
problem it had the first time you ran it.
That said, Exchange is known to me to not comply with the IMAP spec in
all respects, and I have no Exchange server against which to test, so I
rely on help from users to do what is possible to make things work with
Exchange. You may have encountered a new issue.
