How can I access my emails offline?

IMAP accesses your mail on the server but if you are connecting via a phone line you may wish to simply download your e-mail and then disconnect or compose mail and then re-connect to send it. This is possible when using IMAP. The table below shows how to use the offline feature in various mail packages.
