Could someone explain to me the pros & cons of using Cached Exchange Mode
with Outlook 2003 & Exchange 2003. I want junk mail filtering which I need
cached mode on, correct? I also want to setup multiple address books which I
need cached mode off, correct? All my users are on Desktop PCs, no laptops.
Why do I need cached mode if I am always connected to the server?

Any replies would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Marty

You can have multiple address books with cached mode on.

Personally I love cached mode. If the server goes down I can still work,
rather than having Outlook hanging all the time. About the only major
disadvantage to cached mode is the fact that your users will have an OST
file on their local computers which takes up space. This really only becomes
an issue if they have very small hard drives.

Junk mail filtering does require cached mode to be turned on.

Hi Marty,

Outlook?2003 clients using Cached Exchange Mode perform most e-mail-related
tasks from the local client, reducing the number of requests to the server
for data and improving performance for items stored in the local copy of
the mailbox. After the full copy of a user mailbox and offline address book
is downloaded, Cached Exchange Mode significantly reduces network bandwidth
consumption for e-mail between the client and server. This greatly improves
the Outlook experience for remote or branch office users as well as removes
the need to restart Outlook to an offline profile when network
interruptions occur. While Cached Exchange Mode works with previous
versions of Exchange, additional improvements in compression and
performance between Outlook?2003 and Exchange?2003 make the user experience
even better.

Junk mail filtering does need Cached Exchange Mode enabled. However, you
may still use multiple address books when turning on Cached Exchange mode.
Personally, I do like this new feature in Outlook 2003 because I can focus
on my work when losing the connection to Exchange.

When MS changed the format of the PST to Unicode, did they do the same with
the OST?

Question: I added a new user & mailbox to my domain/exchange. The new user
doesn't show up in the GAL for most of my users. When I take Outlook out of
Cache mode & reboot the new user shows up. If I put Outlook back in cache
mode the user is not in the GAL again. I added the new user over 24 hours
ago. How do I force the Cache to update?

Depends on which version of Exchange you are using. Exchange 5.5 only
supports ANSI OST files, 2000 or 2003 allow a Unicode OST file.

Hi Marty,

Please refer to the two Knowledge Base articles:

831124 How to Force Outlook to Resolve Proxy Addresses and Custom
Properties in
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=831124
831123 Changes to the Outlook 2003 Offline Address Book
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=831123

This problem can occur if we are running OL2003 in Cached Exchange Mode.

When we are running in Cached Exchange Mode, we use the OAB instead of the
GC for
directory lookups.
By default, Exchange updates the OAB once every 24hrs, so clients running
OL2003 in
cached mode would not see any updates to the GAL until Exchange republishes
the
OAB.

If we turn off Cached Exchange Mode and close and reopen Outlook, we see
the full
GAL. However this is probably not a good solution for customer, so we
could do
either of the actions below:

We can change the schedule of how often OAB gets rebuilt by Exchange by
updating
its schedule and then having the client download the new OAB by doing
Tools->Send/Recieve->Download Address Book.

However, better solution may be to set registry value so that clients are
forced to
use GAL.

---
If you use Outlook 2003 in Cached Exchange Mode, Outlook 2003 automatically
downloads Offline Address Books to your local computer. This feature works
well for
remote and roving users. However, you may not want this feature available
for local
desktop users. In this case, set the following registry parameter to force
local
desktop users to use the Global Address List instead:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Office \ 11.0 \ Microsoft
Outlook \
Cached Mode
Parameter: DownloadOAB
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 0x00000000


This value forces all directory requests to access the online Active
Directory
Global Address List.

Note: If Offline Address Book files have been already downloaded and
associated
with your MAPI profile, this setting will not have the correct effect. To
use
Cached Exchange Mode with a full online Active Directory, you must set this
parameter and remove any .oab files from the local computer.
---

Hope this information helps!

Have a nice day!

60Question: I added a new user & mailbox to my domain/exchange. The new user
60doesn't show up in the GAL for most of my users. When I take Outlook out
of
60Cache mode & reboot the new user shows up. If I put Outlook back in cache
60mode the user is not in the GAL again. I added the new user over 24 hours
60ago. How do I force the Cache to update?

Interesting. This is true even though it's Outlook creating the OST and not
Exchange? Well, I guess I don't need to worry about it because I'm
connected to Exchange 2000.
