Gmail Backup with German "Google Mail" and Getmail

There is an excellent guide available for backup up your Gmail emails (I've had emails disappear in the past!). http://datalinkcontrol.net/dlc/content/gmail-backup-getmail

But if you're in a different country or use a non-US version, your Gmail folder names are different. In German, the folder name is: "[Google Mail]/Alle Nachrichten", so the correct setting for getmail is:

mailboxes = ("[Google Mail]/Alle Nachrichten",)

Enjoy!
