Should we add a simple function to detect the name of the IMAP mail server software, as displayed in the IMAP banner string, after the capabilities?
Of course. I think we should log this info.

Should we contact @spaetz and ask him to request $$ from the org's opencollective page for the domain name fees accumualted over the years? It's good to show expenses associated with the org, and reimbursements...
Chris Coleman
@chris001
I'm guessing 10 yrs x $10/yr (estimated) for the .org = $100...
Nicolas Sebrecht
@nicolas33
For sure. That's a very good idea.
@spaetz would you agree?

Any suggestion on easy way to identify all places in the code where it resolves a hostname to an IP4 (or IP6) address? imapserver.py ? acquireconnection() ?

@nicolas33 Did you see the 5 security advisory notifications for the website code repo offlineimap.github.io ?? As soon as possible, we need to either upgrade the jquery version being used to version 3.5.0 (this is the current stable), OR apply one of the 2 (?) cheap workarounds mentioned inside the security advisory notifications..
Nicolas Sebrecht
@nicolas33
Thanks for the report. I'm not sure it's very important for a static web site. Anyway, it's good to upgrade jquery.

Hi everyone! I'm trying to configure offlineimap + mu4e. After reading the docs, I tried setting the synclabels for a Gmail account. How could I check if it is working? I have viewed the messages themselves but there is no field called X-Keywords in any email.
Chris Coleman
@chris001
Hi @nicolas33 can I add a label for issues, "need analysis!" ? Referring to the new issue today about gmail x-labels header showing different values depending on message located in gmail folder "Inbox", "A", or "B".
Nicolas Sebrecht
@nicolas33
@chris001 Yes, sure!

Dear Sirs, what is the best way to install the latest version of the offlineIMAP in my Ubuntu server 20.04? The official package is somehow older. Thanks.

Hello to everyone! I am thinking to use offlineIMAP in order to have synchronized two IMAP servers, one local and one remote. I want two way synchronization. Is my senario ok for offlineIMAP? What could be the best setup file? ( .offlineimaprc), assuming that the remote account is ex: IMAP (Dovecot): mail.test.com tester@test.com and the local maildir path: /var/vmail/tester/

Hello, is it possible to run offlineimap as root but to save the mailbox with different owner and group ? Please help. Thanks.
Mike Kranidis
@mikekgr
Dear Sirs,
Is there any supporting way to set user:group ownership in order to save the maildir in the local repository using these pre-specified? I don't want to have root ownership, even if I run the offlineIMAP as root, also I don't want to create separate user.
Thanks.

hi
I have installed offlineimap using
python setup.py install
now where do I find this ~/.offlineimaprc file
I cannot locate this file anywhere
please assist
anyone?

@olaf7
What is the difference between this room and the other offlineimap room?
@dsp90 the ~ indicates the user's homedir and the . is for hidden files. Chances are you will need to manually create a configfile based on a template (or not)

@olaf7
@mikekgr why do you need the latest version and want to abandon proper package management/maintenance?

Would it be an idea to start a wikipage with an overview of what is needed, what the status is, what available is, who interested is, etc etc on 'doing something' (on purpose a broad description) with Python 3? (distill some github issues, and formalize, refactor to clarify and expand)
Mike Kranidis
@mikekgr
@olaf7 I use the official Ubuntu package but because I realized that there in newer, that's why I asked the question.

@olaf7 Since some days Rodolfo decided to port offlineimap to py3 and he has started a fork. Contributions to the efforts are welcome:
So, I think that the best is to request @thekix in https://github.com/OfflineIMAP/offlineimap3 to know how to contribute and what to do next. ,-)
Interesting changes are happening now in the py3 area!

I noticed some discussions in issues regarding where funding should go to. Supporting people supporting the project is a good idea. I know funds are limited and this might be something which can be done with zero funding, but: both the py2 and py3 fork (as well as other offlineimap project(s)) could benefit from an investment in a testsuite/(series of) email server(s) for testing migrations. As basically the servers will also be tested it might be something which can be 'sold' to hostingproviders to be beneficial for them and maybe they can be tempted to sponsor the project(s).
Transparency on how well offlineimap works with certain servers also helps users planning migrations.
If help is needed in implementing such tests I am happy to spend time on it.

Hi all. I'm having issues with OfflineImap syncing. When I delete an email (and read it) on my local machine, when OfflineImap syncs next, it replaces the email in my inbox (unread), and removes it from the trash. This behavior happens pretty much with every email (after the second deletion, it doesn't show up).
I'm using mu and mu4e, and have a daemon syncing OfflineImap every 5 minutes.
If I don't delete the email, but just read it, it doesn't really do anything though. It seems like it only has issues if I delete the email (or possibly just move it to a different folder in general).

Hi. I'm having problems adding an ssl certficate for gmail. I'm on macos. I have tried the following with little luck: sudo openssl s_client -CApath /usr/local/etc/openssl -connect imap.gmail.com:993 -showcerts | perl -ne 'print if /BEGIN/../END/; print STDERR if /return/' > /usr/local/etc/openssl/cert.pem. I also tried: openssl s_client -CApath /usr/local/etc/openssl/ -connect imap.gmail.com:993 -showcerts | perl -ne 'print if /BEGIN/../END/; print STDERR if /return/' > $sslcacertfile, and still no luck.
