Cached mode is part of the setup with Microsoft Exchange. It essentially means that Outlook will create a local copy of the emails contained within the Microsoft Exchange user mailbox. It is useful particularly for people that are mobile a lot, because you don't need to be connected to the company mailserver to access your emails (either via LAN, VPN or the Internet). If you don't enable the cached mode, then Outlook requires a connection to the Microsoft Exchange server to start.

Cached Exchange Mode saves a copy of your mailbox on your computer which provides quick access to your data and is frequently updated with the server that runs Microsoft Exchange.

 NOTE    A Microsoft Exchange Server account is required.


Cached Exchange Mode enables a better experience when you use an Exchange account. In this mode, a copy of your mailbox is saved on your computer. This copy provides quick access to your data, and it is frequently updated with the server that runs Microsoft Exchange.

I'm using OUTLOOK 2010 with my personal (home) DSL account.  How can I determine whether my ISP is using Exchange or something else?

Yeah, you would not have a DSL ISP provide you with Exchange. You can get a Hosted Exchange account with companies such as 1&1, but you needn't worry about the cached mode. Who is your internet service provider?
