cached or not

When we are connecting our computers to Office 365 Exchange, I have the option to use cached mode or not.  What is the benefit of using cached mode and when should I not?  It defaults to cache, so I imagine thats a better way to go

Cached Mode makes a local copy of recent emails.  It means that there will be less internet traffic from your computer when you are accessing these emails.  It also allows you access to them when your internet connection is down.  I would suggest enabling it.

If your users have a small mailbox in size, say under 5GB, and you have a fast Internet broadband, say 500mb, you can use online mode.

Otherwise, use Cached mode and set the sync slider to 24 months.

In addition to the above mentioned advantages, your users can use the outlook to compose email/read/edit emails when you have disconnected form the exchange server, once the connection established all your expected tasks will be continue immediately in cached mode where as in online mode it is not possible.
