I have a bunch of xp computers running exchange on outlook 2003. I verified everyone is in Cached mode. however down in the bottom right corner, some say online and others say connected to server? what does this mean? I was under the impression online means its not in Cached mode

online means connected to exchange server.

the cache monde is only a download copy of your mailbox from the server which you can access it offline.

It's a little more detailed than that... here are the details.
it depends if you're in cached mode, etc..

"Connected: You are working with a copy of your Exchange mailbox saved on your computer, and the copy is being regularly synchronized with the Exchange server. The complete item, including attachments, is downloaded. E-mail headers and full items, including attachments are available to you. "

"Online: You are working with your Exchange server mailbox. Full items, including attachments are available to you. "

so I still don't understand why some users are connected and others are just online if they are both in cached mode. Maybe I am not fully understanding it

Online = direct connection to the Exchange server (not in cached mode)
Connected = cached mode and current
