I am looking for the difference between using cached exchange mode and using
offline folders in Outlook 2003

Exchange server is 2003

Thanks Sue.
As I understand they work together in Outlook 2003 going forward.

Cached Exchange mode uses offline folders in such a way that Outlook displays the offline cached copy of the data rather than going to the server for every item. This also makes it possible to continue working in Outlook even if the network connection is lost.

"offline folders" is the name of a type of storage in an .ost file. Cached Exchange mode uses offline folders in such a way that Outlook displays the offline cached copy of the data rather than going to the server for every item. This also makes it possible to continue working in Outlook even if the network connection is lost.

The older, classic connectivity also supports offline folders, but the user must choose when Outlook starts whether to work online or work offline with the offline folders.

I don't know what "they" you are referring to. The Cached Exchange mode and "classic" methods of connectivity are mutually exclusive.
