I feel I should add that from experience backing up, I recommend not using --inplace option for real backups, to prevent corruption in the case of partial transfers. Also, from experience, I've found --checksum is not really needed.

Wow. That was a bold move. I guess if every company did that, there'd be no PRISM programme. I'm just glad claws-mail cached everything. Thanks again for that info.

I don't think they destroyed the data, they just shutdown the mail servers (the data is encrypted AFAIK). You're right though, they should have given notice. At first, they said the servers were down for maintenance (no prior notice given). It's only when I watched the news this morning, I found out what really happened.

Thanks so much for this. Lavabit shut down today (permanently), and I thought I had lost all my mail. Your tip about Claws maintaining an IMAP cache on disk just saved my data. Me happy.
