NAME

       mount.gmailfs  —  A  program  to  mount  your  Gmail storage space as a
       regular filesystem

SYNOPSIS

       mount.gmailfs [none mountpoint]  [-o options]  [-p]  [-e]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the mount.gmailfs     command.  This
       manual  page  was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because
       the original program does not have a manual page.

       mount.gmailfs mounts a Gmail storage space. It is  usually  invoked  by
       the  mount(8)  command  when using the "-t gmailfs" option.  The kernel
       must support the FUSE filesystem (see README for more info about that).

       mount.gmailfs  log file can be configured in /etc/gmailfs/gmailfs.conf.

       Options to mount.gmailfs are specified as  a  comma-separated  list  of
       key=value pairs.

       Default option values are listed in /etc/gmailfs/gmailfs.conf.

OPTIONS

       -e        Transparently runs encfs on top of the gmailfs volume.

       -p        Prompt the user for his Gmail password.

       -o        Options  are  specified  with  a  -o flag followed by a comma
                 separated string of options.

                 username=value
                           The Gmail account username

                 password=value
                           The Gmail account password

                 fsname=value
                           The Gmail account filesystem name. It is  important
                           to  choose  a  hard-to-guess name here - because if
                           others can guess the fsname, they can corrupt  your
                           Gmail  filesystem  by  injecting  spurious messages
                           into your Inbox.

                 blocksize=value
                           This option can be safely omitted.

                           The default blocksize is 5MB.  Files  smaller  than
                           the  minimum  blocksize will only use the amount of
                           space required to store  the  file,  NOT  the  full
                           blocksize.  Note  that  any  files created during a
                           previous mount  with  a  different  blocksize  will
                           retain  their original blocksize until deleted. For
                           most applications you will make best  use  of  your
                           bandwidth  by  keeping  the  blocksize  as large as
                           possible.

EXAMPLES

       mount      -t      gmailfs      none      /path/of/mount/point       -o
       username=gmailuser,password=gmailpass,fsname=zOlRRa

       mount.gmailfs                none                /mnt                -o
       username=gmailuser,password=gmailpass,fsname=zOlRRa

FILES

       /etc/gmailfs/gmailfs.conf various parameters.
