Cached Exchange Mode in MS Outlook 2007 allows the user to work with the exchange account data when the connection to the exchange server is interrupted or unavailable. It is very helpful for the user to avoid the loss of important data because of some undesirable problems or defects. Cached Exchange Mode stores an exact copy of account mailbox on the computer by automatically creating and using an offline folder file.
The offline folder created by virtue of cached mode, contains downloads and maintains a synchronized copy of the items in all the folders of the mailbox of that particular user. Thus, it acts as an extra back up to prevent the undesirable loss of important data. Outlook manages the server connection and data updates when the connection restores and it may occur automatically. Also, through this cached mode, Outlook synchronizes the cached mailbox with the mailbox on the server on restore. It is possible for the user to set the connection behavior in order to control the amount of data transmitted to or from the Exchange server.
In Outlook 2007 version from the 'Tools' menu, select 'Account Settings'. Now highlight the Exchange server account for the user, and then click change. Now it is possible to turn Cached Exchange Mode on or off, under 'Microsoft Exchange Server'. Then check or uncheck the Cached Exchange Mode as per the need. After this, click 'Next' and in the window that opens, click OK. To conclude, click 'Finish' and apply the changes by clicking on 'Restart' to restart Outlook.
