I'm interested in getting
offlineimap working with my Gmail account so that I can read my emails while offline. My biggest concern with this is that it's a pretty big workaround to get the
.offlineimaprc file to be encrypted so you're not storing it in plain text. However, I have enabled home directory encryption, so unless I'm logged in, the file should be encrypted.
I guess that brings me to the question: is this good enough? I'm fairly security-conscious, and don't want to do something stupid and leave myself vulnerable. I lock my computer when I'm away, or I shut it down. Is home directory encryption enough to keep my
.offlineimaprc file secure from most malicious attacks? Or is there some big vulnerability I'm not thinking of?
