  • Hi,

    Online Mode maintains a connection to the Exchange Server for all your mailbox access, this mode typically requires a stable connection to the server, as far as latency is concerned. 

    With Cached Exchange Mode, a copy of your mailbox is stored on your computer. This copy provides quick access to your data and is frequently synchronised with the mail server. If you work offline, your data will still be available to you. And you cannot use Cached Exchange Mode with a POP or IMAP account.

    For more information about the differences between them, you can refer to Comparison of Cached Exchange Mode and Online Mode.

  • Hi

    Cached modes stores a copy of the mailbox on your machine.

    Online mode maintains a connection to the server to keep the mailbox online with access to the GAL. 

    I have noticed that online mode does put a bit more load on.
