I've always used gMail
the usual way, through their web interface, and used Outlook for my other account. Lately I find myself often working offline (I moved, and haven't gotten my ADSL line yet, and it will be some time before it comes), so I'd like to have an offline copy of my gMail account. In Outlook.
I've looked, and for that there are two options, through POP and IMAP. If I figured correctly, I need to use IMAP settings in Outlook, along with SMTP, and it will download all my mail in Outlook, and later if I delete one in gMail, or one in Outlook it will reflect on the other. Am I right ?
What else do I need to be careful of, if I wish to have an offline copy in Outlook (same directories: Inbox, Send, Drafts, Archive ... and labels <-- can they also be transferred ?) so to have it syncronized between gMail and Outlook ? Change in one reflects in the other.
