Offline Settings

After a long day at work, there is nothing I like better than downloading another set of messages to read when I get home. (Actually, this is pretty handy for reading Bugzilla bugmail if you don’t happen to have a broadband connection available, or if you just want to have your mail and newsgroup messages available offline to consult if you expect a long plane ride.) Thunderbird has a number of ways to manage your offline experience.

If you would like to make your messages available locally when you work offline, you need to set the preference in Tools | Account Settings. Clicking the Select Folders for offline use button launches a window with checkboxes so that you can mark the folders you want to download for offline use. I never used this feature much until I started writing this book, but now I probably couldn’t live without it.
