Is Caching still valid if incoming mail is sent to personal folder?

Hi folks,
Currently I have Outlook 2003/Exchange 2003 setup. My profile was originally setup with 'caching' and I was using my Exchange mailbox as my data file. If I change the delivery location to a personal folder on my laptop, will mail still be cached on the server if I need to check email from a different machine, or will Outlook now act as a pop3 client and pull everything down off the server to this specific box....and thus no longer hold a copy on the server....

Thanks in advance.

Hi SflahertyEE,

With delivery set to a personal folder on your laptop that will be nothing to cache on the server.  Caching only works when the online mailbox is the delivery location.
