My outlook and exchange content is not the same????

Hi all,

This is really wierd and I hope somebody can help me.

We've just setup a new internal network from scratch and a new Exchange 2010 server. From our old Exchange 2003 I exported all my account to a pst file and when my new account was ready in the new Exchange 2010, I imported the pst file in Outlook. On my outlook everything looks fine .... but ....

* If I go to owa for my account then several mails I deleted is still showing in owa

* My contacts folders in outlook shows all my contacts, but in owa I have all contacts foldes, but they are empty.

* If I create a meeting in Outlook, it shows in owa, but if I delete it in Outlook it's still in owa.

Any idea why my Outlook/Exchange is "out of sync" or what you would call it??

Make sure Outlook is not in 'Work Offline' mode. Try pressing the F9 key and see if it synchs up or errors.

That helped .... thanks!!!
Can you confirm you deleted the OST? Aren't your contact folders empty now? Unless you reimported the PST?

Yes I deleted OST and outlook recreated it.

Nope contact folders are perfectly fine on both Outlook and Exchange now.
Hmmm, if you had no Contacts in OWA like you stated then I would expect no contacts in outlook after the OST resynch.

Oh well, at least your problem is sorted

Yeah when I recreate OST, then it must fetch all my email, contacts etc from the Exchange server right? And since it was the exchangeserver not showing me the contacts then I have no idea why it suddently do.

But after deleting the OST, everything is fine now.

If I delete a meeting, it's instantly removed from owa too.

I'm very happy!

Yep, the OST is basically a local copy of your server mailbox.
Glad it is all working.
