This can't be done *yet*.  Although if you care to, you could patch
evolution-mail to do something like this, as if you'd like to know how.

But currently, all you can do is say 'for these folders, download all
unread mail', you can select the folders in the settings dialogue.

but it only downloads the headers not the msg itself

No, it downloads the messages.

Also, any mails you've read with evolution will get downloaded as part
of the reading process so should also be available.

yes but NOT if the email contains an attachment! (it will be downloaded
when you read it but somehow evo wont let me see the msg when in offline
mode, however the file is there in the imap directory... is this a

Could be a bug yeah.

For now i have written a filter that copies an email containing an
attachment to a local folder. That way any email with an attachment is
in my local folder so available offline.
Downside of this is that i now have to delete these big babies in two
place: IMAP and local folder.

That said, back to the normal whining user mode...

I use IMAP. When I switch to offline mode, I get the neat new
"Synchronizing" dialog and everything looks fine. Then, I select a
message (read or unread, it makes no difference) and I get the following
alert box :

Error while 'Retrieving message 3963':
You must be online to complete this operation

Back to online mode and everything works fine. I don't know if this is a
bug or not : in fact I don't really understand what synchronization is
supposed to do. I assumed it was local caching of a folder's content,
but apparently it is not quite that. I looked in the 1.2 documentation
on the Ximian site and found no explanation of the expected behavior.
Could anyone enlighten me ?
