Hi,

After a successful SBS03 to SBS11 migration, following the wizard, the client's outlook, (2003 - 2010) will not update its offline cache to the exchange server. I have tried the info at this link and Binged it, but did not getting anything results that applies or worked.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

GNS

Hi,

If I recreate the profile, wont that create another ost and pull down the emails from the new server?

yes, this will create a new pst file and sync again with the new exchange server.

Okay I have done that, but now cannot see any of the emails that was in the cache ost that I needed to sync to the server!


I have two weeks of emails that are in the outlook cache of the ost that I need to sync to the exchange server. How do I do this?

Older mail should come back automatically from the server ones the outlook sync back with exchange.

but I want older emails that are in outlook to sync to the server as the server does not have those emails.

Hi Anuroopsundd,

Your last comment gave me an idea that worked.

As the mailbox was missing two weeks of info like emails, cal entries, contact entries during that 2 weeks, I exported them from the old server connection to a pst and then imported them to the new server connection and that worked.

Thanks.
