mail.app, offline, BAD, mmkay?

A warning and complaint to all:


Offline support in Mail.app in 10.5.1 (and 10.5.0) is a DISASTER!
Actions performed offline (filing) DO NOT get synced when you connect
back up. Further, every time you send a message it warns you that
you're not connected! I lost 2 hours of email work on the plane.
Apparently only 50% of the 40 emails I sent actually found their way
out, I can't tell what is what, and who has seen whom. It's a disaster.
DO NOT USE mail.app for offline.


darn it.

Comments:

Agreed. This is really frustrating, as it worked fine in Tiger. I use my time on the train daily to catch up on email, but items I delete offline come back as soon as I connect. Items I read show up as unread. I thought I could work around it by flagging the messages I want to delete, but the flags are removed when I re-connect.

What a PITA.
