When you configure an Outlook 2013 account to use Cached Exchange Mode, Outlook 2013 works from a local copy of a user's Microsoft Exchange mailbox that is stored in an offline data file (file) on the user's computer, together with the Offline Address Book (OAB).
The cached mailbox and OAB are updated periodically from the Exchange Server computer.
There are many suprised, like the missing public folders... Some of the entries in my GAL were removed close to a year ago.
Hello all, I have an issue that I can't seem to figure out.
I have several dist lists and users that I have created and/or deleted but the changes do not reflect in the GAL on any onf our Office 2007 systems.
The user can select Cached Exchange Mode or Online Mode during account setup or by changing the account settings.
You can also deploy one mode or the other by using the Office Customization Tool (OCT) or Group Policy. But we can point you in the right direction if you want to learn how to turn on Cached Exchange Mode in Outlook 2013 or change how much email to keep offline.
