IMAP4 and Outlook 2003 in cached mode to Exchange 2003

We have several users with notebooks who are currently configured with OL2003 cached mode to Exchange. They use Public Folder favorites extensively to keep a local cached copy of their Public folders for off-line access. Some of these people are on the road for several weeks at a time and although they use OWA to check their mail, their off line storage gets 'stale'.

I understand that IMAP4 can be used to connect to their Exchange server, but can anyone tell me if connecting to the server using IMAP4 will allow them to sync their 'cached mode' folders in Outlook 2003?

no,
sync mode is only MAPI operation, not IMAP


You can use RPC over HTTP on your server (or front end server) to allow these users to update outlook with a simple http access.
