We presented a seminar this week on email issues on the road. Our bottom line message was that using Gmail, can solve most all issues. We're not talking about using a @gmail.com address for your email (although you certainly can) but just using the Gmail.com email system as an 'aggregator' for any and all your email addresses. Just the way the inbox works, the spam filter, the offline capabilities, and the integration with other Google products make it a great choice for your email program (instead of Outlook, Outlook express, Eudora, etc.)
I love the way archive works (see this article: http://wifisavvy.com/2010/07/3…..o-folders/)
My only *real* problem is a need to mark some email as more important than others. Today I see a notice that they have a new feature 'Priority Inbox' “Do you want to try it?” OH YEAH!

The offline capability is a feature you need to turn on – it's just a setting 'offline'. Then you tell it how far you want to go back – 1,2,3 months? or everything? It will then start synchronizing. So everything online is now on your computer, and everything you write on your computer will be synchronized online whenever you have a connection.
It works *great* I turned it on just before taking a plane trip. I was able to read and write email all day, when I was at the airport and connected to Wi-Fi, the mail got sent.
