Exchange 2003 Outlook Web Access Snyc?

Posted on 2004-11-11

I noticed that if I log into Outlook Webaccess and I get a email. I read it. Log into my Outlook Client and I see this message.  Then if I log back into WebAccess it is gone.  Is there a way to Sync these two things or is it built this way due to security purposes?

    You shouldn't have to do anything to make this work.  If the message is disappearing after you login to your Outlook client, then you probably have a PST file on the Outlook client that the message is being moved to.

    If you set it to keep the mail in your mailbox on the server rather than moving it to a PST file, you will still see it when you go to OWA.
    How you do this depends on version

    In 2003/XP:
    Tools,email accounts, edit
    There is then a dropdown box that says "deliver new email to the following location"
    Set this to your mailbox.
