Cannot add Outlook Appointment when offline

Hiya,

I have Server 2008 with Exchange 2007 all running fine inside the office and for external users (new TS portal is GREAT!).  However, when laptops (both Vista Business & XP Pro) that are on the domain are outside the office, hence off-line, they get a message along the lines of "Cannot access the Exchange Sever at present".  The users can create MESSAGES that will sit in the Outbox until connected but this problems just applies to off-line Calendar entries.  They connect via RCP over HTTPS all fine, with auto-detect doing it's stuff.

NOTE: However, if I set up outlook on a PC outside the office that hasn't been added to the domain I get no problem adding an appointment if off-line!

The correct sync boxes are ticket for Outlook just in case you're wondering!

Look forward to your suggestions...

Anthony

I think that till the time you are offline you cannot add an appointment. As it makes an entry in your calendar.

Of course u can add an appointment or create an email whilst off-line otherwise there'd be little point in ost files. You make your changes then simply sync with the Exchange next time u connect. No 3rd party apps either...

Cool.  Okay.  Consider doing the following...  bring the laptops in, disable cached mode.  Clear out the old PST's, restart cached mode to make a new pst.  Could just be a crappy PST file.

Two duff pst files in one week would be stretching it but will consider.  Looks more like authentication/domain connection issue to me.  OWA shows up whatever's on the sync'd Exchange...

Not the PST files.  Seems to be a conflict between the off-line connections whether on or off the domain...
