Disable OST Exchange Cache mode in Outlook 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can you disable the OST file in the registry for Outlook 2013? We are using Citrix XenDesktop 5.6 and want it disabled in my default user profile. Currently in Outlook 2010 we are using the NoOst dword 2 vaule to disable but this isn't working for Outlook 2013.

    thanks for the help.

  • Hi, Scoobies,

    To turn of the cached mode in Outlook Exchange 2013, Just follow the given path:

    File >> Account Settings >> Account Settings >> Select the account >> Change (click on it) >> Uncheck “Use Cached Exchange Mode” under the Offline settings.

    After disabling the cached mode in Exchange, restart Outlook to see the difference. You can also input the “0” as NoOst dword value, but it will only disable entire section of emails.

    To know, how to disable the cached mode using registry take the help of given link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179067(v=office.15).aspx http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982697/en-us

  • Hi,

    I'm not familiar with Citrix XenDesktop, but for Windows system, we can configure Cached Exchange Mode settings in Outlook 2013 by using Group Policy.

    1. In Group Policy, load the Outlook 2013 template.

    2. To customize Cached Exchange Mode options, open the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) and, in the tree view, expand Domains and then expand Group Policy Objects.

    3. From the short-cut menu (right-click), choose the policy object that you want and then choose Edit. The Group Policy Management Editor window opens.

    4. In the tree view, expand User Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Microsoft Outlook 2013, expand Account Settings, and then choose Exchange. You can also expand Exchange and then choose Cached Exchange Mode.

    5. In the reading pane, in the Setting column, open (double-click) the policy that you want to set. For example, in the Exchange reading pane, open Use Cached Exchange Mode for new and existing Outlook profiles.

    6. Select Enabled and select an option (if appropriate).

    7. Choose OK.
