In reply to: mutt+offlineimap by vmole
Parent article: The Grumpy Editor's guide to mail clients: introduction

The author will probably come out of nowhere and flame me, but whenever I see a recommendation for offlineimap, I feel compelled to mention that, on two different occassions, offlineimap completely destroyed all my IMAP mailboxes and forced me to restore from backups. The author seems more interested in writing weird python user interface wrappers than in fixing the architectural defect which allows offlineimap to screw up majorly.

I don't think I've ever seen John flame someone, so I wouldn't worry about that.

Have you reported your problems to him? I'm sure he would be very interested to hear about them.
