  1. Go to Settings Instellingenen vervolgensSettings.

I can't see email attachments

When you are offline, attachments cannot be previewed within Gmail. However, you can download them and open them within an application installed on your computer.

Opmerking: Gmail Offline maakt alleen gebruik van opslagruimte die beschikbaar is voor je browser. Aangezien dit meestal slechts een fractie is van de opslagruimte die beschikbaar is op je computer, is de beschikbare ruimte die wordt weergegeven in de instellingen van Gmail Offline kleiner dan de daadwerkelijk beschikbare opslagruimte op je computer.
