Hi all,

I have a user who has 2 installs of Office 2007.

In the office he typed an email and saved it to drafts. After a few days of logging on from office and home he then sent this draft message from his Office PC, the email was now no longer in his drafts.

However, upon logging on throuhg the vpn at home the email was once again in his drafts??

why would this be?

Hi neil,

thanks for getting involved. Cached mode will be enabled, is Outlook not clever enough to ask the server for the latest state?
