How Outlook handles a save/send case when exchange server is down... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Friends,

    Anybody please clarify below -

    What happens when exchange server is down while save/send operation of email/meeting? 
    Does outlook store a local copy of that email/meeting (in pst file) for that time and when exchange server comes back UP then outlook save/send it automatically?

    Thanks in advance.

  • yes. If you use Outlook in cached mode then this mail/appointment etc. is stored locally. If the Exchange server is back online then the objects in the send folder are replicated with the mailbox of the user and the storedriver of Excange will work on the objects and send mails etc.

  • What about non-cache mode?

  • Yes if you dont want this feature this is possible But remember that in this case the userr isn´t able to work offline.

    If using Office 2010 and Windows Vista or newerr it is possible to improve the search operation on a mailbox. especially if you has implemented a typical Excahnge instalation on one Serversystem.

    So I think it woulb be better to activate the cache mode. This would improive the enduser experience.
