I don't know isync well. Please check the respective homepages and docu
for concise info. Mailsync is built on top of the c-client library which
is also used by UW-imap and pine. The strength of that library is that it
understands about a dozen mail, mailbox and mailprotocol formats, which
means that you can sync between different mailbox formats, between IMAP(S)

I wanted to package mailsync and in fact still do, but I'm lacking
time, so I'd wellcome anybody that steps forward and does it. IMHO
mailsync is a *very* nice utility, which has handled syncing of ~ 10K
mails for our company without any visible problems.
