Enable Cached Exchange Mode in Microsoft® Outlook
Why and how to enable Cached Exchange Mode in Microsoft Outlook?
The Microsoft Outlook Cached Exchange Mode refers to an optional setting for Microsoft Outlook. The setting can be used in the Microsoft Outlook when you are using the application with a Microsoft Exchange server. As you enable Cached Exchange Mode in Microsoft Outlook, it keeps a copy of Microsoft Outlook data like e-mails and contacts. You can access this data when not connected to the server. Some features in Microsoft Outlook need the Cached Exchange Mode to be enabled. These include the Work Offline, Junk E-mail Filter, Instant Search, Conversation View, Clean Up and People Pane or Outlook Social Connector, etc. The cached exchange mode is enabled automatically in Microsoft Outlook as you configure the Exchange account. If the setting has been disabled, then you can try enabling it. To do this, you need to open the 'File' Menu of Microsoft Outlook and get the 'Info' option. You need to then select the 'Account Settings' and double-click the 'Exchange' account. Finally, you need to select the 'Use Cached Exchange Mode' option and get it enabled.
Here are some benefits of enabling Cached Exchange Mode in Microsoft Outlook:
- Background operation
- Intelligent use of bandwidth
- Benefits to administrators
Among the most important benefits of enabling Cached Exchange Mode in Microsoft Outlook is its background operation. Typical user tasks will not make interactions after your Microsoft Outlook messages have been cached locally. Thus, it avoids blocking of the server. A small amount of data needs to be pushed up to the server so as to keep the mailbox synchronized. But, the pushing of data takes place in the background without interfering with any user actions. Thus, you can get faster access to messages and attachments. This happens as a result of working from the local copy instead of the server copy.
Intelligent use of bandwidth
Another benefit of enabling Cached Exchange Mode in Microsoft Outlook is the intelligent use of bandwidth. The Cached Exchange Mode synchronizes only headers on slow connection. The slow connection refers to connections which are slower than 128 kilobits per seconds. Thus, you can get your e-mailing done fast in slower connections also.
The Cached Exchange Mode in Microsoft Outlook provides benefits to administrators also. One on the benefits is reduced server load. Re-opening of same messages does not need server transactions after Microsoft Outlook has been cached locally. Reduced network load is another benefit of enabling Cached Exchange Mode in Microsoft Outlook. You will not get additional network traffic for subsequent access to messages which have been pulled over the network at once. It provides additional reduction on network load by compressing your messages.
