I have one user using outlook 2003 and because they have a very large mailbox (4GB) I don't want their .ost file becoming corrupted. I previously had them setup up filters in outlook's offlline folders to not sync files that were not needed. This worked great for the past year, their OST file stayed at or below 1gb. We upgraded our mail server. We now have a new box running 2008r2 with exchange 2010. All the filter settings are missing. Even stranger, I go in and set a new filter, and then check it expecting to see the filter applied comment and I see nothing. The filters are not staying. This has become a critical issue as the user has to turn on cached exchange mode due to exchange 2010's really annoying throttling. (thanks MS! that feature SUCKS!)
Please help me find out why the filters will not apply to the folders.
