I wrote a patch some time ago to allow you to instruct offlineimap to
sync only the last x days of email. If you check it out from git, this
patch is already in there. That would allow offlineimap to look only at
the last few days of new email, therefor not chewing up much bandwidth.
The parameter is called maxage in the offlineimap conf file.
