I love having access to all my email messages, even when offline. I've been a long time Gmail user and when they introduced it for offline use I got it immediately. I have the Gmail icon in my dock and haven't looked back since. Recently i've been pensive thinking about using Apple's Mail (with my Gmail account of course) in lieu of the offline Gmail feature. However I enjoy "starring" my emails in gmail and putting them in labels... See, I'm wondering if it'll be worth it to switch to Apple's Mail. I'm aware using IMAP or something that my email status will all be in sync whether i'm in Mail on my Mac, Gmail on a random PC, or Mail in an iPod Touch. That and I'm thinking that a few GB's of emails would slow down Mail and my Mac, no? That's why I specifically titled this thread for people that use Gmail and whether you guys use the offline Gmail feature opening up your web browser or Apple's Mail...and why you chose that route as opposed to the other?
