Exchange Server, MS OUTOOK - contents of DRAFTS folder are not showing up in other locations.

Posted on 2013-01-10
Last Modified: 2013-02-14
I'm at office location 'A" creating drafts.  This is the main office location where my exchange server is located. I go to remove office "B"  I open up my OUTLOOK and I see my inbox, my sentbox are all correctly populated.  But my drafts folder does NOT contain anything I created in office "A"
I log into Outlook Web access.  My drafts folder DOES contain everything I created.

How do I get my desktop outlook in office location "B" to populate the DRAFTS folder with my items I created in location "A?"

This may be the problem

Perhaps you have a filter set to your view?
Verify that the view has been set to "Sent To" and reset it if necessary.

Hi All:
See my picture of my inbox.  There isn't even a DRAFTS folder in my official email account  (this is location "B")
Also, where is the Cache mode check box?

You will have to create a new Outlook profile now it sometimes doesnt allow your Profile to revert to Mailbox once we set some PST as default
