I just installed SBS 2003 and I am using Outlook 2k3 with contact manager.  I do not need to use offline folders, but the button to diable is grayed out.  How do I correct this.

instead of 9 here
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\9.0\
check location 11.0

No.  I have an SBS with excahnge 2003 and the issue is on the client machines.  I am not sure where to look to fix this because its causing connection and performance issues.

Are you aware if your outlook is running in cached exchange mode..If yes , disable cached mode and see if you can enable it.

That worked.  Thank you.  Can you answer one other question?  In laymen terms, what is the difference between Cached mode and not using it?  I have done a bunch of reading and it still confuses me..

Cached Exchange Mode allows you to work with your Exchange account data when your connection to the Exchange server is interrupted or unavailable.
