Server 2008 r2 running Exchange 2010.
Clients use Office 2003, 2007, or 2010.

How do you disable cached mode for Outlook Anywhere for non-domain computers?  I have been able to successfully do it with GPO for domain computers but can’t for non-domain computers.

Please note that computers that are connecting to Exchange using Outlook Anywhere are personal computers.  I do not have access to the personal computer registry.  

Is there a setting that can be placed on the server, within Exchange, or mailbox that forces Outlook Anywhere connections to be online mode only?

I see that there is this ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd439383%28EXCHG.80%29.aspx ) which allows only connection to Exchange in Cached mode:
Set-CasMailbox MailboxName -MapiBlockOutlookNonCachedMode:$false

....but I'm looking for the opposite. I want only online mode not only cached mode.

if you don't have access to them then you need to ask those users to change the profile, I think that there are no other way

Not allowing cached mode on personal computer is for security and compliance reasons.  Asking the user to modify a setting that they can undo is not the solution.  

Exchange can force every connection to a mailbox to run in cached mode only.  I'm looking to force online mode only.

Your solutions did not answer the question.
Your solutions is for a logon script that can be forced on a network.  This question is for non-network computer that I cannot touch.  If the computers were networked (domain) computers, then I would use GPO solution.

Your solutions did not answer the question.  
KB924625 instructs how to disable cache mode only which after applied leaves the option for the user to use cache mode.
KB870926 instructs registry modifications on the personal non-domain computer.  Any registry modifications made can be undone by the user.

@ everyone......
This question is for non-network computer that I cannot touch.  If the computers were networked (domain) computers, then I would use GPO solution.  Any request to the end user to modify their computer is not  acceptable because they can always undo the changes which means they can then re-enable cache mode.
