Is it possible to manage Exchange email (delete, move) with no Internet access

Hello, i've just noticed that when in Airplane Mode, you cannot move or delete Exchange emails on the ipad. I am not sure if this is also true for the iPhone but I am wondering if there IS a way to do this? I would like to manage my Inbox while air traveling but cannot seem to do this. (isn't that the point of having an ipad 2 for business?)

Unfortunately, there is no way to delete mails from an Exchange account without a network connection of some kind.

Because of the way the sync with the exchange server operates, the only thing you will be able to do when offline is read any cached emails.

Moving and deleting emails on an exchange account have to be done when a connection to the server is reestablished. (FYI, it is the same on the iphone)

There is no way to do this. This is an iOS issue.

Is there any ways around this? To manage emails on plane?
Not with an Exchange account. It is a shortcoming of iOS, like askurat1 said.

Looks like Android and WinMo7 are able to do this.
