Group Policy for Cache mode in Exchange RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are running Outlook 2013 on our RDS servers. By default nobody's Outlook is in cache mode. Is there a GPO we can enable to put at least the last year or more of email in cache mode? If so when we apply this GPO will it do this for users who have already setup Outlook or only for new users?

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    According to my research, there is only the option for disabling and enabling cache mode in Group Policy.

    1. First, you have to click on the Start and then Run and then type regedit. You can also hold down the Windows key and press R and then type regedit for the same
    2. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\X.0\outlook\ost
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\14.0\outlook\cached mode
    3. Right-click on the NoOST entry on the right and click Modify.
    4. To Use Cached Mode In Outlook: Give it a value of 0.
      To Disable Cached Mode In Outlook: Give it a value of 2.
    5. Restart your Outlook client.


    >> Is there a GPO we can enable to put at least the last year or more of email in cache mode?

    It seems that you are able to start Outlook in cached mode, and you'd like to download data of specific time. To achieve this, you can set "Download email for the past" to the value you want when you enable the cached mode. (File > Account Settings > Doulbe click your account)

    Move the “Mail to keep offline” slider to the period you want.

    >> If so when we apply this GPO will it do this for users who have already setup Outlook or only for new users?

    The settings in GPO will be applied to all users.

    Hope this can be helpful
