If our users log into a PC that is not their main PC, their email disappears from their inboxes. I thought that if a user deletes email from a 'remote' PC, then that email will be deleted when the user opens Microsoft Outlook on their 'main' PC. This makes sense since the Exchange server retains a current configuration of the user's Outlook profile.
How does Exchange cached mode work with the various versions of Microsoft Outlook? If a user's home client is Outlook 2000, and they log into an Outlook 2003 'remote' client, will Exchange cached mode take effect?
As you indicated, Exchange cached mode creates a local copy of the user's mailbox. It's best used in low quality or low bandwidth connections, and also on mobile computers. Workstations on a decent LAN typically do not have the need for cached mode.
