Outlook 2007 Cached and Uncached in conjunction with roaming profiles and folder redirect

We have roaming profiles with folder redirection via group policy enable for our users when they are at the office.

We run outlook 2007 in conjunction with exchange with cache mode DISABLED to prevent problems synching OST files.

My question is regarding a user who utilized multiple workstations at the office roaming BUT

then has a laptop that they take offsite and want to enable CACHED mode on their outlook for offline editing.

Is there a way via script or policy to change the users outlook config based on what machine they are logging into?

Offsite > meaning that the laptop will not be joined into the domain ?
So the user will use Outlook Anywhere and can enable cashed mode but I guess i didnt understand corectly the question.

I think GPO loop-back processing may help deliver what you want. Baslically you create a GPO with the ALL the settings you need in the USER part of the policy. In the machine part of the policy set "loopback" processing and "replace mode".

Put the machine in its own OU and apply the policy above to that OU. There is more info on this here:-

The problem is that the cached mode setting is stored in the users MAPI profile so you may have to force a local profile when logging into that machine....
