I spent a few minutes getting offlineimap to synchronize my Gmail messages with dovecot, an IMAP server on my laptop. I also set up Gnus to work with the messages. Now I’m having fun speeding through my inbox. I don’t know why, but my text-based terminal seems a lot zippier and a lot easier to work with than Gmail… =)
I’m glad I’m back to doing my mail in Emacs!
