Perhaps it's time to re-evaluate how you use email. ;-)  The entire
point of Gmail is "read anywhere, search your email easily, never
worry about losing it."  You seem to be doing an awful lot of work to
avoid enjoying any of the benefits Gmail was setup to provide.  This
is akin to buying a house and never moving in, living out of your car
instead, but not renting the place out, either.
