Why does Outlook take a few minutes to turn on and update the folders in Cached Mode.
Posted on 2011-02-16
We have been using Outlook for about 1 year. We were using GroupWise and the GroupWise client/server settings were set to server-real time mode. Hence, the appearence of sending/receiving e-mails was very quick. With Exchange we are copying the e-mails to the PC's (using Outlook 2007) in cached mode.
I have noticed that if I start Outlook, that sometimes it takes a few minutes to load up. That is to update all of the folders and be ready to use. Some users have told me it takes them 12 minutes to load up and be ready(I am sure that is exagerated).
My question is what can cause the long delay of a couple of minutes to get Outlook started? the user in question has a small mailbox size. As I mentioend above we are using Exchange/Outlook in cached mode on our PC's.
We are Using:
- Exchange 2007
- Outlook 2007
- WIndows 2008 Server Std(on the Exchange Server)
- Windows XP Professioanal(for the client PC's)
