Gmail’s Labs section graduates another feature into the mainstream today, pulling offline mail into the general settings pane. It’s good news for Google Apps users without much Labs access, and it makes offline settings easier to access in Gmail.
Now that you can fine-tune which messages get saved offline and send offline attachments, Gmail’s non-net-connected mode is more than a little toggle to play with. To access all of Offline Gmail’s settings, look for the new “Offline” tab on your Settings page.
It’s intriguing to see Google give Offline Gmail such play, though, considering that the firm believes that Gears, the offline storage add-on behind Offline, is giving way to HTML5. Then again, maybe they’ve already got that transition road map drawn out.
