  'gmailieer' (or 'gmi') is a small program that can pull email and labels
(and changes to labels) from your GMail account and store them locally in a
maildir with the labels synchronized with a notmuch database. The
changes to tags in the notmuch database may be pushed back remotely to
your GMail account.

The initial fetch of all emails takes some time, but synchronizing
labels and tags, and checking for new messages, is usually done in 1-2

It requires the most recent notmuch, the python googleapi bindings and


  This is still experimental, but it does not have access to delete
  e-mail on your account - only fetch and change labels, so damage
  should be limited.
