How to control Outlook mail download from Exchange?

Hello,

We are running Outlook 2010 and downloading email from a 2013 exchange server.  Due to a new product deployment our users are going to need to load outlook email profiles on many computers all over the network.  This is a problem because especially with some of our larger mailboxes, once we get 4-5 users downloading their email we run into network slowness issues with some of our more sensitive software.

What is the best way to manage this?  Is there any sort of group policy that can limit how much mail outlook will download (maybe just the past 30 days I'm thinking)?

Have I provided enough information to answer this properly?

Thanks!

Disable cached mode and run in server mode and then outlook will download a LOT LOT less data.

For reference the Group Policy to achieve this is:

User Config>Admin Templates>Microsoft Outlook2010>Account Settings>Exchange>Cached Exchange Mode>Use Cached Mode for new and existing Outlook profiles

Setting this policy to "Disabled" accomplishes putting Outlook into Online Mode, and should of course be linked to User OU's.

Also, I know I had to add the Outlook templates to Group Policy Management at an earlier date, someone else reading this may have to import the referenced templates first depending on domain setup.
