Projects / syncmaildir


Sync Mail Dir is a set of utilities to synchronize a pair of mailboxes in Maildir format using SSH to transfer data. It provides the smd-pull utility to pull changes made on the remote mailbox, smd-push to propagate local changes to the remote mailbox, and smd-loop to iterate push and pull in a timely way. Unlike OfflineIMAP It requires no IMAP server to be installed on the remote host. Moreover, it never attempts to automatically resolve conflicts between incompatible mailbox statuses; it just notifies the user explaining how he can fix the problem. Its design is similar to that of Maildirsync, but it is more efficient in terms of CPU cycles and disk I/O.
