Automatically download/send new messages while offline

I am running Outlook 2003 and am having a heck of a time figuring out how to set it up like I had 2000 setup. Most of the time I am working offline. I want to download and send new messages every 5 minutes. I also want to be sure and have "All folders" synchronized when I shut down for the day. Maybe I am overlooking something very simple, but do not remember having this problem with 2000. Any help would be greatly appreicated.

To send new messages every 5 mins , check here
open outlook
go to tools --> options --> mail setup --> click on "send and receive"
and check that option at the bottom and give 5 mins

Have you looked at Tools > Options > Send/REceive > Edit > All Accounts and modify the offline and sync options?

The other option to work offline if the above doesn't work is to use Cached Mode (*.ost) with exchange.

I've tried both of those and neither does what I need. I can't tell where anything is sent or received automatically. If I want to send a new messge I must click on the Send/Receive button. If I want to check for new messages I must click on the "This Folder" button. I believe when I was using Outlook 2000, if I did not want to wait for this to happen automatically, I just clicked on the This Folder button and new messages would be sent as well as new message would come in.

On the bottom right, does it say online (not "connected")?   If so, you are not using a cached profile against exchange.  Can you confirm please?

Did you read the PAQ I linked to?  Is there a reason that you can't use the Cached Mode assuming you are using exchange?

I did change it to Cached Mode and am waiting to see what happens. It does not look like anything has changed. Should I need to re-boot?
