Outlook 2003 cached mode

I am trying to determine how cached mode differs from OST files. It seems to me that once I enable cached mode, I should not need to use offline storage on laptops that leave the facility. Additionally, cached mode's synchronization process is more efficient than OST. Thanks, Walter.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

That is true. Once cahed mode is enabled there should not be a use for ost files on laptops etc. Cached mode provides a significant advantage over ost files as well and by far the best way to go.

    Cached Mode is basically OST functionality but it has been streamlined and code has been written to enable seamless syncronisation. BUT because cached mode is pretty much all happening under the hood if you want to restore someones Exchange Email from their Cached copy of their email.. make sure you read the white papers as it is a bit fraught.

    Cached mode still uses a local OST file. What it does best is 'eliminate' the constant connection with the Exchange server, thus reducing network traffic. It also allows you to reboot your Exchange server without disabling user access to their Outlook functionality. If the server goes 'down', most clients will restore connectivity automatically. Some go to "offline" mode and can be reset. Note, if the server does go down, or the information store service does terminate, the client will display a "trying to connect" balloon message for the Outlook icon in the SystemTray.
