    Hi Helpless316

    Your solution is a simple one. Log onto your network as normal so that you are running a live Outlook session. Go to Tools/Services and select Exchange Server then click the properties button. in the next dialog box, click on the Advanced Tab at the top then go to the bootom of that dialog box and click the Offline folder settings button (you don't need to select the check box yet). When the next dialog box opens, it will have created an .OST file (offline folders file) just click OK at the bottom and Ok, ensure that the Use Offline Folders tick box is ticked and select Ok and Ok. When you are back in Outlook, go to File and Exit and Log Off. Once Outlook is completely closed, restart it and go up to tools and select Synchronize. From here you can go to Offline folder settings and choose additional folders other than just the Outlook Default. You can also download the Global address list which will enable you to address emails, appointments and tasks etc to those on the Global address list and when you click send, they will just sit in your outbox until you reconnect to the network and synchronize.

    If you want access to Public folders off line, you need to add these to your Favourites folder, then right click on the folder and go to the Synchronization tab. Choose the Online or Offline option and this will allow you to view the contents of the folder no matter what the connection state.

    Let me know if there is anything else you would like or need to know.

    Regards
