    Outlook 2010 - Exchange... Tasks Don't Show

    Hi,

    Bit of an odd one - been trying to get my tasks to show on the right hand side and the only way I seem to be able to do this is to switch into offline mode (aka cached exchange mode) which sort of defeats the purpose of having a permanent connection to the Exchange server. Especially as I never actually need to work in an offline mode.

    Thoughts?

    I may be wrong bit I always thought that having an Exchange server implies that you are part of an organisation, not a stand alone person. If that is the case shouldn't you be asking the IT section of the people supplying you with an Exchange account?

    Cached Exchange Mode just enables a way for you to work offline. It does NOT mean you are automatically working offline. There is a brief period where changes made to the local mailbox copy but not yet synced to the server.

    I can't find anything definitive but tasks may not be displayed without cached exchange mode because instant search works with tasks and only works with cached exchange mode.

    You're not wrong and I have asked - many times. In frustration I am seeking other avenues of those that may actually be able to suggest something.Irrespective of that, does it really matter if I ask here as well or even instead of (if that were the case)?

    Your response is appreciated and your comment about the offline aspect is understood.

    How would I find that out from just the client end?

    Can't find it unless you have access to the server. You'd be better off to ask.

    Well I can do that - not sure how long until I get a response.

    Fair enough, but the organisation I worked for had strict rules about what was allowed and what wasn't, and would only deal with anything that was (in their view) important. I suspect that even if someone was able to give you a solution, it may be that you couldn't implement it anyway.

    I hope your IT people get their act together for you - is it affecting many others in your organisation?
