Running Exchange 2010 fully updated, outlook 2010. User has about 100 folders setup. Sometimes he wants to re-categorize the folder system so he will drag a folder to a different folder. The dragged folder will disappear and then reappear anywhere from 15-60 minutes later. Any clue to what is going on in the background here to cause the delay?

This is probably due to Cached Mode syncing up data with the server. If there is a lot of email in the folder he's moving it can take a while for that to happen. Try turning off cached mode on his computer and moving a folder to see if that improves performance. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/turn-on-or-off-cached-exchange-mode-HP010355560.aspx has info.

I have turned off cached mode. Thanks for the tip. I will see if the user reports the problem and report back.
