"Do not deliver before" issue

hi

i have Outlook 2003 clients running in cache mode and Exchange server 2003.

users have configured the "Do not deliver before" options within Outlook.

The message was not sent at the time configured.

When the user logged on his messages were sent - this was after the configured time.

1) I thought the "trigger" for sending the mail at a specific time was set at mailbox level and not Outlook, therefore the user could log off and the mail would be sent
2) As we are running in cache mode, does Outlook not send the email to the server until the time is reached and therefore if the user logs off the email can not be sent?

Please can someone let me know how this works with cache mode and is there something I can do to get it working?

thanks in advance

Hi naifyboy123

this was taken from this site ----> http://www.messagingtalk.org/content/412.html

"2. When you use Outlook 2003 in cached mode and set a message for deferred delivery, the message is never delivered at the scheduled time, but when Outlook is launched
Note: Outlook 2003 in Cached Mode operates against a local .OST file which is synchronized with the server periodically.  When a message is deferred for delivery using "Do not deliver before" in the message options window, the message is deferred to the local Outbox instead of the server.  For this reason, the message will not be delivered from the local .OST unless the client is running at the time the message is scheduled to be delivered"

It is by design according to MS --->  http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=918824
