Exchange Server 5.5

Hi,

we have a central Exchange 5.5 server, i will be bringing a new site of about 5 users on line in the next two weeks. The sites will be linked via an SDSL VPN, what i was wondering was, does Exchange Server 5.5 support the feature in Outlook 2003 cached accounting.

My understanding of this is, that when this option is selected in Outlook 2003 it copies your mailbox to the local computer and then simply sends and receives new email. This would work great for me if Exchange 5.5 supported it

Any ideas?
