Bug Description

These are from the perspective of a sysadmin, running via the command line - backup up several or more accounts.

* Unattended backup of all accounts - I can see you have made a start on this, love to see it complete though! ;) Part of this would require "Graceful failures" - i.e when it hits a problem it shouldn't stop the backup of the next account from running.
* Logging - would be important to me to have a log of successful, and more importantly: failed, backups. I could then write scripts to monitor this for errors and notify me. Personally I prefer to be able to check a log for errors, then integrate notifications into my own system. Although I guess others might like Gibareto to notify them itself.

And really that's it for now! I'm not sure if you were planning to work on any of these soon? If not, I could always roll my sleeves up and learn some python!

Hi, Charlie.

Thank you for your suggestions.

I'll work on them as soon as possible (late august).
I've been very busy last months and I'd no much time to dedicate to gibareto's project.

I'll try to add some more features:
- Attach management
- View mail stored
- Automatic unattended backups
- Best error handling

If you have any other suggestion: you're welcome.

Hi, Charlie.

I've pushed revision 16 (gibareto 0.4) with automatic backup and logging.
See CHANGELOG.txt for details.

Give it a try and your feedback is welcome.
