I'm considering switching to evolution from another mail client, and the

I'm using IMAP (on gmail, to be precise), and what I'd like to achieve 
is automatic sync of both headers and bodies automatically, with minimum 
network bandwidth usage (hotel/airport networks are a mess).

What I've done so far is

(1) setting a bunch of accounts in account settings

* check for new messages in all folders
* use quick resync if the server supports it
* synchronize remote mail locally in all folders

(2) for all interesting folders (so pretty much all of them)

* copy folder content locally for offline usage
* always check for new mail in this folder

Are those the right choices? Some of the folders are quite large 
(mailing list archives with thousands of messages), and evolution seems 
to be syncing almost continuously, so maybe some of the options are 
unnecessary (or maybe I need to set something else too)?

There's no need for "always check for new mail in this folder" if
you're already checking in all subscribed folders. That's probably why
it's syncing all the time.

Be sure to take Evo offline explicitly before disconnecting your
