We have just moved users to Exchange 2010 and setup their Outlook (2010) to use this function. The .pst file was imported after the initial Exchange setup in Outlook. When the Send/Receive button is pressed in Outlook the window remains open for about 5 minutes as the folders (deleted, sent, inbox) are synchronizing. We thought that this may only occur on the first such action but we find that this occurs every time. Is there a setting that we missed on this installation to prevent the synchronizing of the folders and only send or receive mail?

With Outlook 2010 on Exchange 2010, there is no requirement to press the Send/Receive button.

Emails will flow in and out immediately without any interaction from the user as your client will continually be connected to the Exchange server.

Only with protocols such as POP3/IMAP, does the user ever need to press Send/Receive, as the connection is periodic instead of permanent.

If you do not press Send/Receive, I assume there are no errors?
