Right, that should be the other way around. I'll update the README.

There are two secret files. One is the API client_secret which can be
specified with the '-c' option (also for pull), this one is only needed
initially and can otherwise be stored somewhere else:

When authenticating (either running 'auth' or some operation requiring
authentication: pull/push) a local access token is retrieved, this is
stored in: .credentials.gmailieer.json in the local mail repository.
