Yes, but this setting is to set OFFLINE connection, so if your user will be connected to your local network he will be consider as ONLINE user so this policy will NOT applied to him.
He will be able to see whole email history.

For ONLINE (connected to domain) users there is no way to shrink cached mode view.

See the below screenshot on what the settings should be,  but I have it set for 1 month, you will need to set it for 90 days. Looking at the screenshot you can see the path to the admx templates for outlook under user configuration > policies > administrative templates > your version of outlook and there you will find the policy options to enable and modify.
