Writing emails while offline can help keep you on top of things, especially while on the go. As of today, Offline Gmail allows you to add attachments to an email while you’re offline, bringing essentially the full offline experience to Gmail.
No one likes sending out the “Oops! I forgot my attachment!” email following an incomplete draft. If you work offline with regularity, Offline Gmail’s new offline attachment feature means less chance of forgetting. For those who have held off using offline access, here’s how to get things started:
If you haven’t tried offline access yet, visit the Labs tab and follow these instructions to get started:
- Select Enable next to Offline Gmail.
- Click Save Changes.
- After your browser reloads, you’ll see a new “Offline” link in the upper righthand corner of the Gmail page, next to your username. Click this link to start the offline set up process and download Gears if you don’t already have it.
If you aren’t using Offline Gmail just yet, take a closer look at what else it gets you.
