Are there a lot of mails in your inbox, did you wait long enough for it to download all messages? Have a look at the networking tab of your task manager, can you see a steady network load there? (providing you don't have any other bandwith consuming programs running)
siltechAuthor Commented:
yes there is a lot of emails and i have been waiting for few hours.
there is not any network load in networking tab and there aren’t any other software running

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

The (1B) means that it's updating, one byte. This is weird.

Can you try starting Outlook with disabled cached exchange mode?

when i disabled the cache exchange mode i look like it is working
Gerwin Jansen, EE MVETopic Advisor Commented:
Ok, looks promising, can you swith to enabled cache mode again and verify if it is working?
Can you verify that you have enough disk space on the workstations hard drive to cache your exchange email?
