Mbsync Is Way Faster Than Offlineimap

Tue 02 February 2016 #misc

If you’re in the market for a tool that syncs your email over IMAP, I recommend you check out mbsync. On my hefty machine, offlineimap takes many minutes to sync, all the while pegging a CPU at 100% and slowing my machine to a crawl. On the other hand, mbsync sips 5% CPU, finishes much faster, and has no noticeable impact on me while doing other tasks on the same machine.
