  • Hi,
    Some comments:

    >For Users where Outlook is in Cache mode, They got to have their Outlook Address book when they are offline.
    Comment Nr1: I'm pretty sure that the users want to have an updated OAB when connected to Exchange too.

    >Outlook Downloads the latest updates on Offline address book , whenever they go online.
    Comment Nr2: That is not true. Outlook will only automatically download the OAB once every 24 hours.

    >So that they can use their updated address book when they are offline.
    Comment Nr3: See comment nr 1

    >Earlier Exchange Versions Outlook Connects to the Mailbox Server
    Comment Nr4: Outlook 2003 downloads the OAB from Public Folders.

    >But From Exchange 2010 Outlook Connects only to the Client Access Server.
    Comment Nr5: Even Outlook 2007 downloads the OAB from the webdistributionpoint.

    I think your blog post need some more work.
