    If Outlook looses network connectivity, you will also get the error message.  It is not dependent on cached exchange mode .........

    Accepted Solution

    Network disconnects and timeouts can be a pain.

    First check all physical connections on the local pc and at the server ...(ie LAN cards, cables, switches, etc..)

    Then see here ......
