DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents briefly the mailsync command.
mailsync is a way of keeping a collection of mailboxes synchronized. The mailboxes may be on the local filesystem or on an IMAP server.
There are three invocations of mailsync:
The first will synchronize two sets of mailboxes - in mailsync referred to as "stores".
The second form will list the contents of a store. It's usage is recommended before synchronizing two stores to check whether mailsync is seeing what you are expecting it to see.
The third form will show you what has changed in a store since the last sync.
OPTIONSA summary of options is included below.
- -f file
- Use alternate config file.

Use mailsync with specified message-id algorithm. Currently you have the
choice between md5 and msgid (default). msgid uses the
Message-ID in the mail header to identify a message. md5 calculates
a MD5 hash from the "From", "To", "Subject", "Date" and "Message-ID" headers
and uses that as message identifier.
If you use mailclients and servers that allow empty Message-IDs (f.ex. in mail drafts) then you should use the md5 algorithm.
