Calendar folder doesn't synchronize with offline folder..

Postby Gerhard Austaller » Fri, 05 Mar 2004 17:27:06 GMT


I have a very annoying problem. The (olny!) calendar folder off Outlook 
2003 doesn't synchronize its offline folder any more. In Eigenschaften 
-> Synchronisierung I can read that the calendar contains 500 elements 
but the offline folder only 150. Whatever I try the offline folder 
doesn't synchronize. Synchronization works perfect with all other 
folders. Nor I apply any filters either..

Any ideas?

Make sure the the Calendar folder is selected for synchronisation in;
Tools-> Options-> tab Mail Setup-> button Send/Receive-> select default 
send/receive group-> button Edit-> select Exchange account

Also check your synchronisation log for errors. The log is visible in Folder

Thx for the advice but didn't work. But I just discovered that I had 
auto archiving turned on. So the appointments I'm missing have been 
moved to a pst file and deleted from (only?) offline folder. But they 
somehow still are stored in the server folder. I have caching in 
Outlook 2003 turned on. So far I have no solution how to solve this...

1.Why doesn't Outlook 2003 synchronize offline folders without r

Outlook is running.  You must not have worked with Offline folders recently.  
In earlier versions of Outlook, an offline folder (.ost) is created manually 
during the Exchange mail service configuration. The offline folder then 
duplicates your mailbox on the Exchange server to this offline copy of your 
mailbox. The offline copy of your mailbox synchronizes with the Exchange 
mailbox anytime you are connected to the Exchange server.  When you open 
Outlook, without the Exchange connection available (offline), then it opens 
in the offline mode and you see your email folders just as they were at the 
last online synchronization.

In Outlook 2003, MS added a feature called Mailbox caching. It performs a 
similar function by running your Outlook viewing your cached folders which it 
synchronizes to the Exchange mailbox.  This is different from the previous 
versions in that you are always looking at the cached (local copy) mailbox 
whether online or offline. I have found there are problems using the cached 
mode in that there are delays associated with the realtime synchronization of 
the Exchange mailbox and the local cached mailbox.  With caching, you are 
never looking directly at your Exchange mailbox in real time.

The offline features of previous versions are still available in OL2003 and 
you set them up the same way as before. When caching is turned off and OL is 
connected to the Exchange server, you should see your Exchange mailbox in 
real time and the offline folders should synchronize during send/recieve and 
exiting so that the local copy of the mailbox is available to OL during 
offline sessions.  Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work correctly in OL 
2003.  The offline files look like they are synchronizing when OL is online, 
but when OL is opened offline, the mailbox folders are empty.

2.Calendar does not fully synchronize to offline folder

When I synchronize my exchange mailbox to my offline 
folder (outlook.ost), then connect to Outlook 200 offline, 
my meetings are not present in my calendar folder.  

I have over 600 items in my calendar , however only 89 
items are shown to have been synchronized to the offline 

I've toyed with a few settings and performed an Office 
2000 repair.  No luck.

Someone please help me!

3.Synchronizing local calendar folder (PST) with Exchange folder

I have a local PST file for my Outlook 2003.

I schedule meetings in the local calendar folder.

I need this information to be available for my colleagues in the office, 
that are using an Exchange server.

How can I automatically publish this information?

When I connect, people can't see this information.


4.System Offline - Outlook Hangs - Synchronizing Folders

Office 2007 Ultimate
XP Pro SP3

I had an Internet connectivity problem and had to take my computer offline.  When I started Outlook
I got a message from the tray icon saying Outlook could not reach the server and would be working
offline.  Then it turned into a different icon and the mouse over tip says "Microsoft Outlook is
synchronizing folders."

Outlook is "Not Responding".  The status bar says "Send/Receive Status 60%".

Is there a problem using Outlook offline?  Why does it say it is synchronizing folders when there
isn't anything to synchronize them with?

If I kill it it just reopens and hangs again.

Is there a way open Outlook without an add-ins getting loaded (in case this is a add-in problem)?

5.Offline/Online Folders - Synchronizing (Contacts)

For some reason, I have 2900 contacts in my Offline 
folder but only 250 of them appear in the online folder. 
Of course, I want them all in the online folder so my PDA 
sychs properly and so I can access them when logging in 

How do I move the contacts from the offline to the online 
folder? I am afraid that by synch'ing the two folders, 
the online foler will overwrite the offline one, and I'll 
lose all those contacts.

I am using XP, Outlook 2003.
