http://nicolas33.github.com/offlineimap/#signals says

 You can send SIGINT to OfflineIMAP using (~/.offlineimap/pid) to kill it. SIGUSR1 will force an immediate resync of all accounts. This will be ignored for all accounts for which a resync is already in progress.

Can someone please explain how to send a signal to a file?

In that file is stored PID (process ID) of the current running offlineimap process. You can use this number as an argument to kill command, to send signals. Like this:
kill -s SIGUSR1 `cat ~/.offlineimap/pid`
