I use the gmail interface mostly but keep a backup using offlineimap.
In principle it's possible to use mutt+offlineimap but with my slow
internet connection it takes quite a while to sync; also offlineimap
crashes quite often when trying to download attachments over
5 MB. Earlier I used fdm but that downloaded quite a few mails more
than once.
