Outlook running on two computers - Out of sync
Posted on 2012-04-13
I have two laptops, both running Outlook 2003. We have an inhouse Exchange 2003 server. Both mailboxes are running in cached mode, and both are online with the server and say "All folders are up to date." However, this morning, I permanently deleted about 8 emails on one of my laptops. However, the other laptop still shows these emails in my mailbox. I also "read" a few other un-read emails on the same laptop, but the other laptop that still shows the deleted emails shows these emails as un-read. I went to Outlook Web Access (OWA) and checked to see if the emails were deleted and un-read in there, but OWA also shows the emails that I deleted and still shows the read messages as un-read.
Is there anyway to force outlook to do some sort of syncronization with the mail server? I am still getting new emails on both computers just fine, and if I send an email from one computer, the other shows it being sent. So this seems to prove they are really both online and connected to Exchange. I could just delete the 8 deleted emails on the computer that shows them still there, but I would rather exchange sort it out. Any ideas?
