Offline Gmail

Posted: January 27, 2009 in Technology

Until now, the one drawback with GMail is that if you’re offline, you can’t read any of your messages, search through past missives or draft replies. Now Google is finally fixing that by rolling out a beta feature that lets you access everything offline. According to the Official GMail Blog, the new feature will use Google Gears to download a local cache of your inbox and, promises Google, enable you to work on your mail as normal – any composed messages and changes will be sent and synced once a connection is re-established. Google says the new feature will pop up under the Labs tab in GMail users’ screens in the next few days.
