Guide to Leverage Gmail Offline

Email services such as Gmail need active internet connectivity to enable individuals to check their inboxes, get new emails, and reply to them. However, with the offline mail option, people can access more or less every feature of Gmail without connectivity. They can check their inbox, open unread emails, and even send new emails to recipients.

Below-given are the steps to follow to leverage offline Gmail service:

  1. Open your Gmail account on Windows, Mac, or Linux and access the settings using the icon on the top-right corner. In the pop-up menu, select 'See all settings' to open the settings menu.
  2. Go to the 'Offline' tab from the top navigation bar.
  3. Check for 'Enable offline mail' on this page and turn on the option. You can also opt for the needed settings for the feature. 
  4. Once done, click on the 'Save changes' option at the bottom.

When the offline option turns on, Gmail will automatically sync your latest mails for offline access and maintain them for a specific time, ranging between 7 to 90 days. A thing to note is that sending an email in offline mode won't actually send the mail to the recipient; instead, save the composed mail in the 'Outbox' folder and send it soon as the person gets back online.
