IMAP offline mode

Just "synchronize" your mailbox after logging in.  By default, only the
mail headers, not the message bodies, are transferred upon logging into an
IMAP server, and the message bodies are called for as you read.  If you
manually issue the "synchronize" command to the client, then it will
download all of the message bodies immediately and cache them locally.

I do this regularly with Netscape Messenger 4.7 and UW IMAP.
