Gmail Releases Offline Email Service For Testing

January 28, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – It looks as if Google is once again listening to the people. Gmail is now finally offering an offline service, a feature that users have been begging for for years.

This option will allow you to access Gmail in the same way you would a desktop outlook program, using stored data to allow you to read messages offline, a great feature for anyone who has a shaky connection, even with cable companies that can go out for days at a time.

Another great part of this offline service is the ability to write and store emails, which will be sent out automatically when your connection is reset, so once you have written it, and hit ‘send’, it will leave your sent box the moment you come back online.

To access to service, go into your Gmail account, and click on ‘Settings’, then ‘Labs’. Be sure to check out some of the other interesting little programs they have in testing there. The more people who try this out and like it, the better the chances of further development, and a full release.
