Thank you for your reply. I found the link in the wiki just a little later 
after I wrote to the list. Sorry.

I am trying to use the program offlineimap, to download the whole archive. 
Can you estimate how much data that will be? Is there any special time 
prefered to do such performance consuming downloads?

Kind regards,
