Hello

Is there a package for offlineimap? It is not in the feeds but maybe someone has managed to use it under pdaxrom. For those who don't know, offlineimap [1] is a tool for synchronizing local email folders ("Maildir") with an IMAP server. It is great for reading mail offline with mutt.
If offlineimap is not possible do you know of any other such tool that is available under pdaXrom?

Thanks.

While there isn't a package for it, offlineimap is only a script, python I believe. I have it working on my Z right now. You'll need to install an extra python package, (Sorry I don't remember which one right at the moment) Once that's installed you can copy offlineimap.py to someplace in your path, or create a symlink.

As it's only a script, you'd think it would work pretty much on any ROM, so forgive a 5600/sharprom user butting here, but I've been trying to get it to work for a while now & all I get is an error complaining that there's no function named 'offlineimap'. I too would greatly apprecaite some details on how you got it working please. thks

I have installed:
python-codecs
python-core
python-dbus
python-fcntl
python-io
python-math
python-stringold
python-xml
python-re
python-unixadmin
python-distutils
python-netclient
python-mime
python

I'm not at all sure how these relate to the packages for the sharp rom. I haven't used it in ages. For the 5500/5600, I know openzaurus has a package for offlineimap.
