Do you know how Outlook 2003 synchronizes data in Cached Exchange Mode?

Please find this useful article, which discusses about how the Outlook synchronizes the data in Cache mode

  • The time that is required to complete the initial synchronization between Outlook 2003 and Exchange Server 2003 depends primarily on the size of the mailbox and on the speed of the connection to the Exchange Server 2003 computer.
  • Access to all data is not available until the initial synchronization is complete.
  • Therefore, we recommend that you use a fast connection when you start Cached Exchange Mode for the first time.
  • After the initial synchronization is complete, Outlook 2003 keeps the local copy up to date automatically.
  • If a change is made to the data on the server, Outlook 2003 is notified to synchronize the changes.
  • Changes on the server may occur if a new message was received, or if another client made a change to existing data.
  • If changes are made to the local data, Outlook 2003 synchronizes those changes with the server automatically.
  • This process occurs in real time and does not require user intervention.
