Outlook 2003, Exchange 2000 - Cached Mode


G

Guest

My company is currently planning on upgrading to Office 2003 (including Outlook 2003) and leaving our Exchange 2000 server as is. Is it necessary or required to run Outlook in cached mode since we'll have Exchange 2000 on the server?

Not required, but definitely advantageous.

A technician here has advised that junk email folders will not work if we use Outlook 2003 in non-cached mode, with Exchange 2000 on the server. I've asked for documentation of this issue, which he has so far not provided. Have you heard of any such issues? We are a relatively small company (about 400-odd users), and all but 3 are located in the same building. The remote (laptop) users already use an .ost file. There are many users that use delegates, and I understand that cached mode will cause problems with this feature.

If you are in cached mode then Outlook will do filtering on both message
content/subject and domain (using your Blocked Senders, Safe Senders, and
Safe Recipients lists). If you are not in cached mode then Outlook will only
filter based on domain (using your Blocked Senders, Safe Senders, and Safe
Recipients lists).

Hope this helps.
