The key to your UID validity problems, unfortunately, is most likely
From the manpage:
Some IMAP servers are broken and do not support UIDs properly.
If you continue to get this error for all your folders even
after performing the above procedure, it is likely that your
IMAP server falls into this category. OfflineIMAP is incom‐
patible with such servers. Using OfflineIMAP with them will
not destroy any mail, but at the same time, it will not actu‐
ally synchronize it either. (OfflineIMAP will detect this
condition and abort prior to synchronization.)
This question comes up frequently on the OfflineIMAP mailing
plete.org/>. You can find a detailed discussion
of the problem there.
