Configure Evernote For Offline Access on iPhone or iPod Touch Via IMAP

I recently started using Evernote to store all of the notes I take on a daily basis across plarforms. Evernote allows me to take notes and sync between numerous computers, my T-Mobile Blackberry Curve, and my iPod Touch. One thing that Evernote lacks is a solid method for accessing my notes when I am out of range of an Internet connection. I was pleased to learn that you can actually access your notes offline via IMAP and even though it is not ideal its good enough for now since every other part of Evernote is top notch.
