Recently, Gmail addedÂ Â new feature with ability to access email offline even when there is no internet. This is possible using Google Gears, which downloads and syncs Gmail contents on your computer as soon as live internet connection is available. Now, besides email messages you can also access attachments in offline mode.
As shown in image above, you can specify the size of attachments that should be downloaded for offline access (maximum attachment size is 20MB). You can also refrain from downloading any attachmentÂ by selecting ‘no attachments’ option. Don’t be surprised if this option is missing from your Gmail account, Google is slowly rolling it out to everyone. [via]
