You can access the public folders that are displayed in the Favorites folder under Public Folders when you don’t have a connection to your mail server or are working offline.

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.

Cached Exchange Mode is useful in the following situations for users who:

  • Frequently move in and out of connectivity.
  • Frequently work offline or without connectivity.
  • Have high-latency connections (greater than 500 ms) to Exchange Server or slow internet connections.
