Outlook always updating cached messages

outlook always updating cached messages-40

This results in a smaller OST; it also means that I can’t access these items when working offline.

Who’s to know when I need to look at a project report from 1995?

You have to take these figures with a pinch of salt because obviously the contents of my mailbox have changed since I started to use Outlook 2013 full-time on July 18.

However, the change in the way that Outlook compresses some data fields in the OST seems to have had the desired effect, even if it means that the deployment of Outlook 2013 means that every OST has to be rebuilt.

After all, if you always have a network connection, you can always get back to the Exchange server to view the data that’s not cached in the OST (assuming of course that you ever want to look at old data).
