Access Gmail Offline


Recommended Posts

GMail introduced a new feature recently, that is browsing mails offline.


First you need to install Google Gears, you can download the online installer from here



Run the online installer and it will install Google Gears on your system.


Now open your GMail and navigate to the settings and then to the Labs tab, there you will find a feature called offline, Enable that.


That`s it you are almost done, just a few clicks away. It will ask your permission to install offline access for GMail, click next.Then you get a Google Gears security warning, allow it.Click ok in the next window and you are done.It will download all your mails to your hard drive for offline browsing. You can see the status in the status window.


Once you turn on this feature, Gmail uses Gears to download a local cache of your mail. As long as you're connected to the network, that cache is synchronized with Gmail's servers. When you lose your connection, Gmail automatically switches to offline mode, and uses the data stored on your computer's hard drive instead of the information sent across the network. You can read messages, star and label them, and do all of the things you're used to doing while reading your web mail online. Any messages you send while offline will be placed in your outbox and automatically sent the next time Gmail detects a connection.
