Outlook "do not deliver before" cached mode

It appears that if you are running outlook in cached mode you have to have outlook open to deliver delayed queued messages. I thought that cached mode would sync the offline files while connected to the server. If you set up a delayed message delivery while connected to the server, shouldn’t it sync and hold the message in queue on the server as well as you offline files? If not is there a way to have a message queue for delivery on the exchange server while running in cached mode?

Hi pcazel,

When in cache mode and Outlook is diconnected from the server, Outlook will start to sync with the .ost or server offline file. The offline file acts as if it is the server. The delayed email, which is sitting in the outbox, has not been sent to the server. So, the server or the ost file has no way of knowing about the "waiting email".

The "do not deliver before" is only run from the client and not the server. I don't know of a way you can delay an email with the client closed.

cheers,
frankco

Hello frankco,

The main benifit of running in cahced mode is so the user will have access to ost file while out of the office.
Any suggestion\recomendation on how to have an offline file (ost & oab) that will sync while in non-cached mode without user intervention. How would you set up the account to switch between the server and offline file depending on the detection of a network?

Thanks

Hi pcazel,

The switch between the ost file and the server is automatic. No need to adjust anything.

The delayed timing of the message is handled by the client and not the server. It's like a client side rule which, only runs when Outlook is open whether you are syncing with the ost or server.

cheers,
frankco
