Outlook 2010 Drafts folder synchronization with Exchange 2003

I have two users who have full exchange rights on a mailbox. This mailbox profile is set on both users' PCs in Outlook 2010. One PC is win XP Pro and the other is win7 Pro 64 bit. The user on win XP creates an email and saves it into the draft folder for the other user to review. Sometimes she goes back into the email and makes changes as well. When the win7 user goes into Outlook, she sees the email in draft folder but the changes are not there. The changes appear after several minutes. There is not set pattern.

Is there a set interval at which the synchroniztion takes place?

Any ideas?

I don't think so. Try turning off cached mode for shared folders. You can set this in outlook as follows:-

1.Click the File tab.
2.Click Account Settings, and then click Account Settings.
3.On the E-mail tab, click the Exchange account, and then click Change.
4.Click More Settings.
5.On the Advanced tab, under Cached Exchange Mode Settings, select the check boxes for the options you want.

This can also be set using a policy or installation option


Hope this helps....
