Offline access is now available for Google Apps users that also use the Chrome browser. I was stuck without Internet during the recent storms and these services really came in handy! Google Apps mail, Calendar and Docs can be managed in offline mode and they will sync up to your server when you re-establish connectivity.
Mail: Offline mail has most functionality and will leave message in Outbox for sync.
Calendar: When offline, you can view events and RSVP to appointments.
Docs: You can view documents and spreadsheets offline.
You need to download a plugin to Chrome for each of these to work.
