When using the term “Exchange Mailbox”, we are using an “alias” for a Database that hosted on the Exchange server.
We can describe the OWA (Outlook Web Application) mail client as a “viewer” for the data that stored in the Exchange database, and the Outlook mail client as a “viewer” for the database (OST File) that stored on the user desktop (Hard drive). WAN environment: When using a local Exchange Server (on-premises), Outlook synchronizes data to and from the Exchange Mailbox, by using a local LAN infrastructure.
In researching the problem I found many references to this problem which go all the way back to Outlook 2003.
[more] Microsoft’s solution is to create a new Outlook profile, as the existing profile has somehow become corrupted.
I really wanted to find a “cause and effect” fix, but never did.
So ultimately, I created a new profile and the problem is solved.
So, in case that this is your scenario, the only advice that I can offer is: Be patient and read the information 🙂 By default, Outlook client is configured with the option of cache mode.
The meaning of “cache mode” is that Outlook client, will try to download all the Mailboxes content from the Exchange server to the local hard drive and save the information in a local Database (OST File).
I have never figured out why it has become so acceptable to send such large attachments. Our industry happens to be aircraft sales but the same scenario could exist in Real Estate, automobiles, yachts or any business that needs to send lots of photos back and forth. The executive will work all day on the office computer, log off and then work all evening on the home office computer.hen using Microsoft Outlook client to access Exchange mailboxes and Inbox, the Outlook does not actually update the all mailboxes and Inbox folder.The content and emails in the mailboxes are not refreshed, i.e.Here is the scenario: Executive A is a high-volume, high-density email user in a far city.He easily sends and receives several hundred emails each day, most of them with large attachments of photos or PDFs with embedded photos.
