This documentation is also located online at
https://imapsync.lamiral.info/INSTALL.d/
https://imapsync.lamiral.info/INSTALL.d/INSTALL.Debian.txt
There is three install sections in this document,
one for Debian 9 Stretch
one for Debian 8 Jessie
one for Debian 7 Wheezy
First a call to Debian packagers
Why imapsync is not in Debian as a package?
Imapsync used to be in Debian from 2005-04-25 (release 1.125) to 2011-01-25 (release 1.315).
It could be in Debian nowadays, as always, my last words on this discussion were
"Do what you want, I promise I won't complain anymore about the fact imapsync is on Debian or not."
https://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2011/01/msg00058.html
The license is now "No limits to do anything with this work and this license".
Feel free.

=======================================================================
Installing imapsync on Debian 9 Stretch
=======================================================================
Here is the command to install imapsync dependencies.
The repositories are the classical ones, ie, a
/etc/apt/sources.list file with:
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main contrib
You need root privilege to run it, be root or use sudo.
apt install -y \
libjson-webtoken-perl \
libauthen-ntlm-perl \
libcgi-pm-perl \
libcrypt-openssl-rsa-perl \
libdata-uniqid-perl \
libfile-copy-recursive-perl \
libfile-tail-perl \
libio-socket-inet6-perl \
libio-socket-ssl-perl \
libio-tee-perl \
libhtml-parser-perl \
libjson-webtoken-perl \
libmail-imapclient-perl \
libparse-recdescent-perl \
libmodule-scandeps-perl \
libreadonly-perl \
libregexp-common-perl \
libsys-meminfo-perl \
libterm-readkey-perl \
libtest-mockobject-perl \
libtest-pod-perl \
libunicode-string-perl \
liburi-perl \
libwww-perl \
libtest-nowarnings-perl \
libtest-deep-perl \
libtest-warn-perl \
make \
cpanminus
After installing the dependencies, imapsync should be working,
go to the section "After installing the dependencies" below.
=======================================================================
Installing imapsync on Debian 8 Jessie
=======================================================================
Here are the commands to install imapsync dependencies.
You need root priviledge to run them.
The first command installs standard Debian packages:
apt install \
libauthen-ntlm-perl \
libcgi-pm-perl \
libcrypt-openssl-rsa-perl \
libdata-uniqid-perl \
libfile-copy-recursive-perl \
libio-socket-inet6-perl \
libio-socket-ssl-perl \
libio-tee-perl \
libhtml-parser-perl \
libmail-imapclient-perl \
libparse-recdescent-perl \
libmodule-scandeps-perl \
libreadonly-perl \
libterm-readkey-perl \
libtest-mockobject-perl \
libtest-pod-perl \
libunicode-string-perl \
liburi-perl \
libwww-perl \
libregexp-common-perl \
libtest-nowarnings-perl \
libtest-deep-perl \
libtest-warn-perl \
make \
cpanminus
The package libdata-uniqid-perl is in the jessie-backports repository
https://packages.debian.org/fr/jessie-backports/libdata-uniqid-perl
Here is how to add jessie-backports repository in /etc/apt/sources.list
https://backports.debian.org/Instructions/
If you can't add the jessie-backports repository in /etc/apt/sources.list you
have to install Perl module Data::Uniqid with cpanm:
cpanm Data::Uniqid
The following second command installs "manually" the Perl module Sys::MemInfo
because Debian 8 Jessie doesn't have this Perl module available via a package
(but Debian 9 Stretch does):
cpanm Sys::MemInfo
The following optional cpanm command updates Perl module Mail::IMAPClient
because it is good to be up to date with that imapsync dependency,
but it is not mandatory since Mail::IMAPClient is installed by
the Debian package libmail-imapclient-perl:
cpanm Mail::IMAPClient
Last, in case you need to use XOAUTH2 authentication you have to install
the module JSON::WebToken with the command:
cpanm JSON::WebToken
After installing the dependencies, imapsync should be working,
go to the section "After installing the dependencies" below.
=======================================================================
Installing imapsync on Debian 7 Wheezy
=======================================================================
Here are the two commands to install imapsync dependencies.
You need root priviledge to run them.
The first command installs standard Debian packages:
apt-get install \
libauthen-ntlm-perl \
libclass-load-perl \
libcrypt-openssl-rsa-perl \
libdigest-hmac-perl \
libfile-copy-recursive-perl \
libio-compress-perl \
libio-socket-inet6-perl \
libio-socket-ssl-perl \
libio-tee-perl \
libmail-imapclient-perl \
libmodule-implementation-perl \
libmodule-runtime-perl \
libmodule-scandeps-perl \
libpackage-stash-perl \
libpackage-stash-xs-perl \
libpar-packer-perl \
libreadonly-perl \
libterm-readkey-perl \
libtest-fatal-perl \
libtest-pod-perl \
libtest-requires-perl \
libtest-simple-perl \
libunicode-string-perl \
liburi-perl \
make \
cpanminus
The following second command installs "manually" the Perl modules
Data::Uniqid
Sys::MemInfo
because Debian hasn't made them available via a package yet.
This cpanm command also installs manually Perl module Mail::IMAPClient
because it is good to be up to date with that imapsync dependency,
but it is not mandatory since Mail::IMAPClient is installed by
the Debian package libmail-imapclient-perl:
cpanm Data::Uniqid Sys::MemInfo
In case you want to update the Perl module Mail::IMAPClient,
a major module for imapsync, but an old March 2012 release 3.31 in Wheezy,
the following command updates it "manually":
cpanm Mail::IMAPClient
Last, in case you need to use XOAUTH2 authentication you have to install
the module JSON::WebToken with the command:
cpanm JSON::WebToken
After installing the dependencies, imapsync should be working.
=======================================================================
After installing the dependencies
=======================================================================
You don't have to be root to test and use imapsync.
Take imapsync either on github or at the upstream site.
Add execution permission to the downloaded script:
chmod +x imapsync
Check the dependencies and print also the basic example:
./imapsync
Perform a live test showing imapsync job:
./imapsync --testslive
Now install imapsync on the system (need root priviledges again):
cp imapsync /usr/bin/
That's finished for the installation part.
You can now use imapsync without knowing where it is located
on the system:
imapsync
Now go to read http://imapsync.lamiral.info/#doc
start with the tutorial.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
