I'm just installed the development version, 9.04, and offlineimap using apt. 

When i run offlineimap i get a warning saying an md5 module is deprecated. I'm not sure what i need to do to fix it. It says i need to "use hashlib" instead. Does anyone know if can install this using apt to fix it, or if it is a bug? 

Thanks for any help on this, Jamie. 

Here is the error message i'm getting.:

/var/lib/python-support/python2.6/offlineimap/folder/ DeprecationWarning: the md5 module is deprecated; use hashlib instead
  import os.path, os, re, time, socket, md5
