I'll figure out a way to have the mboxes downloadable. If I understand
Google's documentation of robots.txt they don't care about robots.txt if a

Since I havn't got root, I can't get any further to install httpd on my own.
I couldn't figure out puppet, the links was 404 for me. I've created a
request in Jira and I hope someone will take a look:

Kind regards,
