What is Cached Exchange Mode

With Chanced Exchange Mode, Outlook no longer depends on continuous network connectivity. When a user is connected, Outlook continuously updates users’ mailbox so that the mailboxes are kept up to date.

If a user disconnects from the network, e.g., by moving to an area without Wi-Fi access, the user can continue to access the last available email data.
