Chris Irwin lived a personal experiment to synchronize his mail, with the following goals:
- Access mail from the commandline
- Synchronize between hosts, with no information totally local
- Use standards
- Minimal annoyance day to day
- Synchronize with Android
To accomplish this he uses a stew of utilities and libraries: mutt, notmuch, Khard, Khal, Todoman, iSync/MBsync, vdirsyncer, git, CalDav-sync, CardDav-sync, OpenTasks, Baikal and DavMail.
