Gmail tests feature to enable offline access

KOCHI: Google is adding a new dimension of convenience to its popular Gmail service by making it possible for account-holders to access their email even when they are not connected to the Internet.

This new feature is being tried out among select users, to start with. "We're making offline Gmail available to everyone who uses Gmail in U.S. or U.K. English over the next couple of days, so if you don't see it under the Labs tab yet, it should be there soon," said Gmail engineer Andy Palay, in a recent blog entry announcing the launch of the feature. (U.S. or U.K. English is among the language settings available to users and 'Labs' is an option where new features are made available to users for testing).

If the offline feature is turned on in the mail settings, Gmail will automatically download the user's mail locally to his or her computer's hard drive and keep it synchronised with the content that is stored on Gmail's servers.

Even when users go offline, they will still be able to read the mail in their inbox and even reply to messages or compose new mail, though these will be actually sent only when they go online again. They will also be able to do offline, most of the mail operations that they would online, like labelling messages and tagging them with a star. Gmail automatically downloads software that facilitates this process of synchronisation, called Gears, and installs it on the user's computer. But the downloading of Gears, which is technically a browser extension that is associated with some of Google's other services, will be skipped if it has been downloaded and installed earlier.

So how do you find out if Gmail has already provided this feature for your mail account? Login to your account, click settings and then click the 'Labs' tab there (if it is available). If you find the 'Offline Gmail' feature there then you can go ahead and try it out by selecting 'enable' and clicking the 'save changes' button. But first, check if your browser supports this feature. Right now it is available for Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2 and Firefox 3, which covers a large part of the browser world.

Support for other browsers is coming soon, promises Gmail. When this correspondent enabled the feature and reloaded the browser, a new "Offline0.1" link appeared on the upper righthand corner of the screen, next to the username. The setup process began as soon as this link was clicked. Then, the setup window displayed a message stating that mail up to two years old would only be downloaded (based on the mail volume) and then went on to offer shortcut options, enabling the launch of the offline mode from the desktop, start menu and quick launch bar of the computer. The mail could then be accessed locally with a click or two, just like any computer programme.

However, composing messages with attachments is not possible when the user is offline. There is also a "flaky connection mode" that helps when the Internet connection is unreliable or slow. The user can also control the synchronisation feature, for instance, by pausing it for an hour. The option of disabling the online synchronisation process is also available.

The offline feature does indicate the volume of mail being downloaded in terms of the number of messages and also the date range -- for example, "If you disconnect now you will have access to mail back to 12 January 2009" -- which means that a user can decide to store old mail up to a particular date. Gmail says it is "still an early experimental feature, so don't be surprised if you run into some kinks that haven't been completely ironed out yet."
