I am connected to the network. I can click on send/receive and receive email. But I am not able to access the shared folders or add an "out of office" message since outlook is operating on offline mode.

Is there a way to switch to online mode?

    Click on the offline icon on you right hand side bottom of outlook interface. Then select "workoffiline" again, it will get you back online.
