Folder size in outlooks says one thing and size on server says another

I enabled email limits a couple weeks ago. For the most part everything has been smooth except for one thing. For some reason people with offline folders enabled (cached mode in Outlook 2003) has a size mismatch. When you look at the folder size in outlook (by right clicking their name in the folder list) it will say something like 189,987kb. when you look at the server it will say something like 267,765kb.

I know the size on the server by using ESM is the correct size but why would their be such a dramatic difference?

Take Outlook out of Cached mode and look at the folder sizes and see if they match.  Then reenable Cached mode and look at it again.

Sometimes when Outlook is in Cached mode it refers to the .ost file first rather than to Exchange.  See if this updates it.
