imapsync with OpenSuSE 11.4

Imapsync itself is a great tool. I find the price of 42.00 EUR bit high to have to move “only just” quickly a mailbox with a few hunder MB.

Thanks to google the problem is solved….

zypper ar perl

zypper ar imapsync

zypper ref

zypper in imapsync perl-Date-Manip perl-Mail-IMAPClient

And now a simple

imapsync --host1 HOST1 --user1 USER1 --password1 PWD1 --host2 HOST2 --user2 USER2 --password2 PWD2 --authmech1 PLAIN --authmech2 PLAIN --nofoldersizes --useheader Message-ID --fast

is no problem anymore.

Last but not least some credits. The Repositories were found here, for finetuning imapsync i found some useful hints at Tonis Blog.

Imapsync can also be installed from source:
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get install libdate-manip-perl libterm-readkey-perl libterm-readkey-perl libdigest-hmac-perl libdigest-hmac-perl libdate-manip-perl libmail-imapclient-perl makepasswd rcs perl-doc git

cd /tmp

git clone git://

cd imapsync

sh examples/

sudo make install

apt-get install make
