Outlook Cached Mode on Citrix with Office 2010 and/or Server 2008

I've read that you can now enable Outlook Cached Mode on a Microsoft 2008 Terminal Server.  See http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/outlook/thread/e62a8745-0389-4619-8159-9dcab910fb01

My questions:
1. Does anyone know if this is a function of Office 2010, Server 2008 or a combination of both?
2. Does anyone have this working with Citrix?

We have a single W2K3 server running Citrix with Office 2007 and several dumb terminal users. Would like to be able to run Outlook in cached mode because the Internet connection at this office is slow and faster speeds aren't affordable.  

Thanks for any help.

Hello
It's provided since exchange 2010 and only with outlook 2010
And yes It works with citrix

Be carefulll. you certainly have roaming profiles, so profile loading/unloading will last very very long, if you delete temp profiles (And even if not... ost is changing each time...)... be sure to keep little quotas on the mailboxes...

Thanks for the reply.  

My understanding was that it depended on Outlook 2010 and/or Server 2008, not your Exchange version.

What Windows Server OS is your Citrix server running?

For example, if I install Office 2010 on our existing W2K3 server which runs Citrix, you think we'll be able to use cached profiles in Outlook?

Our Exchange server is in a shared hosting environment.  It is Exchange 2007 and I don't have any control over configuration settings.

my citrix is 2008.
It has to be on a server 2008, it's my understanding too.

But i understood it has to be ex2k10/outlook2k10 also.
I don't have another environment for testing your needs.

We are going to plan an upgrade to server 2008 and Office 2010 and see what happens.

Thanks for your help!

Until I implement this ourselves, we won't know what the exact solution is.  It appears Server 2008 with Office 2010 will do it.
