    synch issisu folder cant be disabled one is on server one in outlook. Is it for protection of user to dont lose mail. Standartly synch eror is when you change email or something on both sites in same time.

    Disable exchange cached mode and try it.

    Different locations, like different boxes, or different locations, like different cities?
    So I guess the only way to minimize it is to turn off caching, which we have on all desktops.

    To narrow down this issue, please answer and perform the following questions
    and steps:

    1. If you installed any Anti-Virus software on the SBS Server and client
    workstations, please temporarily disable it and then check if the issue can
    be reproduced.

    2. This issue also can occur if the OST file exceeds 2 GB, please check the
    size of the ost file. Also, I suggest you create a new mailbox to see if the
    problem persists.

    3. Please refer to the following KB article to troubleshoot this issue:

    How to troubleshoot synchronization problems when you synchronize your
    Exchange Server mailbox with your .ost file in Outlook 2000

    4. If the issue persists, please perform the following test to narrow down
    this issue:

    Test 1: Safe Mode
    Safe Mode will disable all add-ins and extensions that will not start, as
    well as all corrupted resources, files, registries and templates.
    1. Close Outlook by turn off the Outlook process using Task manager.
    2. Click Start-->Run, type "Outlook /Safe" (Quotation marks are not included
    and there is a space between Outlook and /safe) and press Enter.
    Let me know if the issue persists in the Outlook Safe Mode.
    If Safe Mode resolves the problem, please disable the Add-ins by the
    following steps:
    1. Click Tools, click Options, click Other tab.
    2. Click Advanced options button, click COM add-ins, uncheck all the
    available options.
    3. Test the issue again.

    Test 2: Create a new profile
    I suggest you create a new email profile with a new PST file. Test the issue
    in the new profile. Please refer to the following article to create a new
    email profile. Please start in the new profile and provide me with the
    How to create a new e-mail profile in Outlook 2003

    Test 3: Clean Cache
    If the problem still occurs, it is probable that the Outlook cache files are
    corrupted. Let's perform the following steps to solve the problem.
    1. Perform a search on your computer to find the following files:
    - extend.dat
    - outcmd.dat
    - frmcache.dat
    - views.dat
    2. Rename these files to .old extension if you can find them.

    5. If the issue still persists, please run 'eventvwr.exe' (without the
    quotation marks) on the command prompt on the SBS 2003 Server and the
    problematic workstation, and check if there are any error messages about
    this issue, then paste the full context in your reply.

    I appreciate your time and cooperation. If anything is unclear, please feel
    free to let me know. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
