Office 365 and Citrix Xenapp


It seems office 365 outlook works fine when OST's are in place but using outlook in online mode produces major delays. This means big problems for Citrix users. Sure I can move Citrix users to OWA  but who wants to work in OWA all day. My citrix supplies non-persistent desktops. Has anyone else encountered this issue and resolved it

I would recommend you setup a GPO for just your XenApp servers and set the Outlook cache days limit to limit the size of the OST files. This should keep your performance in check and allow many users to use Outlook.

OST files in Outlook 2013 are much smaller than in previous version of Outlook.

I'm guessing as soon as users access the search facility they will be left waiting a long time. If they scroll down on messages are they only seeing what's in the OST? thanks

I will update this question when I setup a test environment

I will soon be able to update this question after a full test of both cached and non cached mode.

I have tested this and can confirm the speed is bad for using outlook in non cached mode on Citrix. I would compare it to using an old Windows 2000 machine with 32MB of memory.
