Chapter 30. Working Remotely with Exchan... > Configuring Offline Access to Exchan...

Configuring Offline Access to Exchange

After you've set up your Exchange Server and Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 Server to accept remote access clients through RRAS, VPN, or RPC over HTTP, you must configure Outlook to work offline. This task can be relatively easy or very complicated, depending on your particular needs and your particular Outlook setup. The next few sections walk you through the various scenarios for configuring Outlook for offline access.

Using Cached Exchange Mode

Outlook 2003 introduces a new method of connecting to the Exchange Server: Cached Exchange mode. Using Cached Exchange mode, Outlook configures an Offline Folders file that's used to store a copy of the data stored on the Exchange Server. In some ways, Cached Exchange mode is similar to working with a Personal Folders file. Messages are stored on your local computer so that if the connection to the Exchange Server is severed through a faulty connection or the decision to work offline, you can continue to access your messages. You can compose new messages, work with contacts, tasks, journal entries, notes, and create appointments. You can delete messages, flag them for follow up, and move them to other folders.
