How well does offlineimap work when you modify the contents of
messages?  This doesn't change the message UIDs, does it?  Are you
syncing between two imapd instances, or one imapd and a maildir?  (I
currently run a local imap server as well, because it seems to be a
lot faster.)

How does the imap server even detect that the message contents has
been modified?  Does it have to stat 300,000 files every time you
check your email?

In my setup, I regularly check email from three or four different
machines, so the syncing is not just for backup purposes.  When I
switch between computers all my label changes need to be visible.

Yes, I'd be glad to take a look at your scripts.
