Switching to Cache Exchange Mode

We have a couple of remote users on laptops that are going to enable 'cache exchange mode' on their Outlook 2010 clients.  We feel this will give them better performance with file attaching, etc.

Once the change is made, what it the quickest way to get the intial sync of all folders done?
Is there a way to sync all folders?  They understand that the initial initialization will take some time... I just want to make sure all of their mail folders copy down...  Thanks

If it is possible, have the remote users come into the office and sync over the local network. This will be fastest and most likely to ensure a complete sync.

Otherwise, over a WAN, Outlook will have progress test at the bottom right. It will tell you that it is syncing. It does take a while, so best to do it overnight or something like that, lest people become impatient (100% of Outlook users will get impatient before the sync is done). My counsel is let it finish the first time.

I do know that it takes awhile, but I found that even after it was done.. It didn't bring down everything...when I would go into a folder that I hadn't accessed for awhile, there would be no mail in it... But then the sync would kick in and the mail would soon appear... I am a pretty patient person, but these users are not... That was why I was asking if there was a way to sync everything right from the start....
