I have my inbox set to have all messages sync'ed when I go offline.  When I do
go offline, there are some messages that don't get cached.  Even if I manually
use the sync command before I go offline, the messages still don't get cached.

I created a debug log for the IMAP and IMAPOFFLINE at level 5.  Toward the end
of the log I was viewing a message that wasn't in the cache.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select a folder to sync when going offline
2.Go offline

Actual Results:  
Some messages don't get cached as they are supposed to

Expected Results:  
All messages in the selected mailbox should be downloaded to the local cache.

This is the log of the failure when I tried to read a message that wasn't there

I ran a log for IMAP and IMAPOFFLINE at level 5.  I then proceeded to go
offline.  Toward the end of the log, I was attempting to read a message that
should have beeb cached but wasn't.

I can confirm this bug - it appears to be a duplicate of 296154.

I see the same problem frequently. I try using File->Offline->Download selected
messages, to force a sync, but that usually does not help.

What build are you running? I fixed a problem like this a couple months ago, iirc.

In 2.0.0 builds (e.g., I still see this problem. I must admit I don't use "offline" as much as
I used to, since it's pretty easy these days to be online. However, I do
tend to find that it gets screwed up, particularly after doing a delete
trash and compact folders. I sometimes have to "rebuild index" to get
everything refreshed again, which is expensive, as it has to potentially
download a lot of things I already had downloaded...

I've also checked this in beta 4, and it continues to work very well.
