First, thanks for a great piece of software; it really does what it is designed
to do very well.
My question is this: Is it possible to "seed" a new installation of offlineimap
with the already downloaded MailDir from another computer? I ask because I
have a couple gigs worth of mail on my gmail account which I am currently
downloading to my laptop. I also want to use offlineimap on my desktop (to
interface with mutt) but re-downloading all the messages again seems like a
I noticed that the hostname of the computer offlineimap is running on is
included with the file name. I'm assuming just renaming those files with the
hostname changed to the new computer might create some issues?
Has anyone tried anything like this before? What has your experience been? How
did you go about it?
All the best,
