using GMail offline

29 01 2009

Google Labs recently released an extension for Google Mail (GMail) which makes GMail available for offline use. The biggest drawback on GMail is that you can’t use it when your’re not online. Not only you can’t receive or send new messages, you even can’t browse your archived messages.

Of course you can configure your desktop mail program to fetch google mails via POP3 or IMAP but that isn’t the same as accessing it Online.

Now and with the help of the Google Gears add on for Firefox you’re able to synchronize your GMail account to your local computer for offline use.

This feature is only available when you’re using GMail with “English” as default language. The option wont show up if your for instance use the german interface for GMail.

When you have the english version, then you got a “Labs” tab in your GMail settings. One of the top most options here is the GMail offline mode. Just enable and save and GMail starts to install the Gears scripts and start to synchronize your mails locally. You get a nice progress window which you how far back in time your mails are synced local.

After enabling offline mode GMail is a lot faster and – of course, available offline. You can search your messages and even write new mails. They will be saved in some kind of out basket and send when your’re back online.

As I mentioned in the podcast this blog gained about $18 USD via the Google AdSense ads on this site. This is just peanuts and doesn’t cover the hosting costs by far. But it’s a start at least.

I also enabled short ads in the RSS feed of our blog. I hope this doesn’t annoy our subscribers too much. Please leave a comment if it’s too much.

[Updated]: syncing iCal with Google Calendar using CalDAV

31 07 2008
  • deutsch

With iCal you where able to subscribe to remote calendards via urls and publish your calendars to WebDAV shares already. But this was not really a synchronization as the subscribed calendars where not editable.

Since a few days Google Calendar supports the CalDAV protocol for syncing calendards via HTTP/HTTPS protocol. Now you can setup your Google Calendar in iCal. Simply open the preferences of iCal and go to “Accounts”:

iCal Accounts1

Add a new account by clicking on the + sign at the bottom. A settings pange will appear for the account details.

iCal Google2

Username and password are the same as your Google Mail accounts. You have to expand the server options to enter the Calendar url. The url scheme of this is:

https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/[ your Google Calendar email address ]/user

Now click “add” and you’re done. The new calendar will appear in the list of calendars and is now editable. It will be synchronised regularly with Google Calendar.

iCal Google 2

[Update: 2008-10-07] If you like to add your additional Google Calendars as well you need the so called Calendar ID from Google for the CalDAV URL. This can be found in the settings of the specific Calendar in your Google Calendar account.

So the resulting URL would look like this:

e.g. https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/7oddefoo1ltvq0psfhbp8vs4gc@group.calendar.google.com/user
