mount.gmailfs — A program to mount your Gmail storage space as a
mount.gmailfs [none mountpoint] [-o options] [-p] [-e]
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
Default option values are listed in /etc/gmailfs/gmailfs.conf.
-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.
The Gmail account username
The Gmail account password
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.
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
mount -t gmailfs none /path/of/mount/point -o
mount.gmailfs none /mnt -o
/etc/gmailfs/gmailfs.conf various parameters.
