"IMAP has the same problem. And if you never downloaded the e-mail onto your device BEFORE going into a not-zone, you're screwed no matter what. Otherwise, what happened to SAVING the e-mail before heading out?"

Most IMAP clients solved that problem over a decade ago by downloading the email and only deleting it if the server said the email is gone on the next synch. These days, I use K-9 and have it synch all of the mail to my phone so I can read it regardless if I have a data connection or not.
