But there's one caveat though! offlineimap does a symmetric
synchronization between both sides. If you play around with your
local copy, and delete some messages there, offlinemap will also
delete the corresponding messages on your ISPs IMAP server (unless
you delete the metadata before), which may not exactly be what you
want. I've been there the first time and I've been bitten by this
once... but I'm using this now for regular backups and sychronizations
between multiple IMAP hosts, both mobile and fixed.
