We are a large corporate Organisation and have just completed the full deployment of MS Office 2007 to approximately 3,000 Users. We are now considering pushing-out (via the Network), Cached Mode of Outlook 2007 and am trying to pre-empt a few questions Users may raise with our IT Service Desk.
What does cached mode mean? What happens if my Laptop is unplugged from the Network, can users access my mails?Does caching include: Mail, Calendars, Appointments, Notes? How does this affect you if you access shared Mailboxes? Can you draft emails while unplugged from the Network? What are the security implications? What happens if there is a Disk failure when emails are cached? Is a copy of the cache kept on the Server? Is there a limit on the numbers of emails that can be drafted in cached mode and disconnected from the Network?Is there a limit on the time that the cached Mailbox can be disconnected from the Network?Are there any problems that other Users/Sites using Cached mode have encountered?Are there any other drawbacks?
