rImap rImap
Remote Imap, Mail replicator.
by Rimon Barr

rImap is a utility for synchronising folders of mail replicas. It currently supports IMAP and standard mail file replicas. It's modular design allows of easy extension with other replica types. I use it on my mail folders every 15 minutes, and to download stuff to my computer at home. I haven't lost a single message yet. You are welcome to use it as well.

rImap has now been open-sourced, and development resides at Sourceforge.
