Offline Mode

Offline mode is a special feature offered by your email app that allows you to work without internet connection. You can complete your usual tasks – such as reading and replying to messages in your inbox. As soon as you turn off offline mode and regain an internet connection, your account will synchronize. Any messages drafted in offline mode will be sent and new messages will be received. Offline mode is especially useful when you have limited data or a slow internet connection. It’s also helpful for times when it’s inconvenient to receive messages – like if you’re away on vacation. Offline mode is available in webmail for many email providers, and in email applications like eM Client. n.

Outlook Offline Mode

After offline mode is turned off, all messages from the Sent folder are sent and your Inbox is synchronized. eM Client is compatible with Outlook, and supports Outlook users who have offline mode enabled. You can also conveniently turn on Outlook offline mode from your desktop with the eM Client application.
