Mike This person is a verified professional. Checking too frequently either automatically or manually can cause Outlook to hang on the process and you will not be able to send or receive mail until you restart Outlook. Run outlook then put it back in to cached mode, you should see the e-mails gradually appear in the inbox.
One word of warning - you shouldn't set that interval to more often than maybe every 10 minutes, every 5 would be the absolutel minimum I'd set. If you set too often you run the risk that Outlook could start the next download before finishing the previous download and that could cause duplicate messages and other possible issues.

Solution 3 — To deal with the problem, you can start with clearing the Offline items from Outlook. As you know that you can use Outlook offline anytime with the help of the cached data it has stored. This cached data not only helps you operate Outlook on offline mode, but also improves the performance. The problem arises when the offline items do not match with the online items, due to any sort of connectivity issues.
So, the best option you are left with is to clear the offline items so that this issue could be resolved. Follow below-mentioned steps to do so:. Note : This will surely solve your problem. But, this solution will remove your files locally, click on the Synchronization tab and there you will see the details about the offline and server folders.
There you will see that offline items are zero, but Server still contains items. After performing this, open Outlook again so that Outlook can download all items from Exchange again. Solution 4 — Try using Scanost. It is an inbuilt utility of MS Outlook, and you can find it at:.
Now, you know where to find this utility in which version of Outlook, but before you run it, it is advisable to close all the running instances of Outlook. Solution 5 — As we have already discussed that due to the cached data, the offline and online data may mismatch, so to overcome with this issue it is advisable that you disable this option from the settings as below:. By performing these methods, you can solve the update issue.
As you can see that how important OST is when it comes to this issue, so if none of these methods work, then you can try to repair OST with Kernel for OST recovery tool , which is an outstanding solution to every problem related with your OST. When the manual solutions provided above do not work, you can move ahead and try a professional solution — the Kernel OST Recovery tool.
The tool will be checking the OST files for corruption and recover the entire items, including the deleted ones. This issue has plagued me for over a year. I tried 2 and it worked immediately.

How do you define "too large" for an OST file? Tuesday, July 5, PM. It could be happen that your exchange admin might have set max size for the MB. Wednesday, November 9, AM. Hi I have actually the same issue with Outlook clients on Exchange Monday, November 14, PM. OST file sizes are determined by the version of Outlook you are using. However, you can make changes to the registry: How to configure the size limit for both.
Thursday, November 17, AM. Same exact problem here, though I've only seen it with some Outlook clients. Never seen anything like it before and no idea what could be going on. I'm thinking of trying to install the latest CU for my server which is CU Friday, January 13, PM. Hi, Did installing CU13 help?
Our is on CU10 and some users are facing the same issue. Thursday, March 9, AM. Hi: CU13 seems to have helped but we still have intermittent instances with this. Any thoughts? Thursday, March 23, PM. Wednesday, March 29, AM. I still have this issue and I have tried all the recommended 'fixes', I have also tried Outlook , Outlook and now happening with Still using Exchange which is fully patched.
Thursday, March 30, AM. I have also tried all of the above, but the issue still persists. I use Office for business. Tuesday, June 6, AM. Yep, I am seeing this too. Everything completely up-to-date and patched, only this problem.
Works fine in online mode. Microsoft, please focus on fixing bugs, it will be much more appreciated than features at this point. Tuesday, June 6, PM. Seeing the same issue here on a handful of users. Monday, July 10, PM. Monday, July 17, AM. I also have the same issue. It is on an exec's mailbox. Not sure if the issue is related to the volume of email he has since most other users have a lot less.
Monday, July 17, PM. We have just created a new mailbox for my user, her mailbox was clean, only a few mails and still the same problem so it definitely is not size related. However in your case I don't know what your bandwidth is like, here in South Africa 20GB OST would be a killer size to download especially since we have no datacenter on the continent.
Tuesday, July 18, PM. I'm wondering if anyone has resolved their issue regarding this if it isn't networking. Edited by senkosal Wednesday, July 19, PM typo. Wednesday, July 19, PM. I don't think anyone has resolved this. I've seen it happen on the same LAN with no firewalls in between. Microsoft needs to acknowledge it before any progress is made I guess. Disabling cached mode is how I'm dealing with it right now. Don't know what else to do.
Wednesday, July 26, PM. Same here. About 3 out of All procedures didn't help, upgrading from to helped one user, not the others. Thursday, July 27, AM. This works fine in my case. Edited by holber Friday, July 28, AM. Friday, July 28, AM. Friday, July 28, PM. I've just done this for a user and they did apparently have a corrupt folder in there according to the move report. After deleting the profile and starting again, Outlook is re-caching the mailbox, BUT it is not displaying the remaining GB, just says "this folder is up to date" while the total items keep increasing.
So I think this weird behavior is another symptom and this hasn't in fact fixed it but we'll see later today. I also have a additional mailbox in my account. Monday, July 31, AM. Friday, September 1, PM. Just as an update to this -- Doing the EDB migration resulted in no corrupted items being detected, and issue still persists. Also tried New-MailboxRepairRequest and again, nothing detected, and issue still persists.
Tuesday, September 5, AM. This issue is ubiquitous and you can go back many months-- years even-- to find examples of it. Just sayin Tuesday, September 5, PM. For some users, removing caching is fine, for other more mobile users where bandwidth may be an issue, that simply isn't a solution Hi I managed to solve my problem by "compacting" my ost file. This might take awhile depending on the OST file. This will clear up white spaces as well. Hope this helps. Monday, September 11, AM.
Paresh, Thank you for your post. Friday, September 15, PM. We are also seeing this issue sporadically. We are running Outlook 64bit in cached mode on Windows 10 v pc's with Exchange on premise. We have to run in cached mode due to Dynamics CRM. We have seen emails that are delayed from internal clients and application generated emails - so it has to be something between Outlook cached mode and exchange. Hope MS can figure this out. Thursday, October 12, PM.
Still seeing the issue even on new installs of Windows 10 and Outlook I am just using online mode whenever it happens. Can an MS tech please acknowledge this and try to troubleshoot it? Monday, October 23, PM. Hey there! Microsoft please fix it! Friday, December 15, AM.
I have had this issue for months. I have tried the following fixes, all to no avail: 1. Delete OST file completely and rebuild 2. Use a brand new email account 3. All of the fixes above 4. Thursday, December 21, PM. I too am experiencing this problem. Surely this can't be the solution, turning off a feature to provide functionality is not a way to fix problems!!
Tuesday, January 9, PM. Seen this issue a few times - each time, it's a user who has access to a LOT of folders. Are others seeing the same? Tuesday, January 23, AM. I've seen it on brand new users too. I hadn't seen it in a few months and was hopeful it had been fixed. As a test I installed their copy of Outlook and it's syncing the whole mailbox down just fine - so it's definitely a problem with the latest Outlook. Wednesday, January 24, PM.
Tuesday, January 30, PM. Monday, February 19, PM. Thursday, March 1, PM. Monday, March 5, PM. I have this issue since I upgrade office home and business to Office Pro. The Office software was downloaded from Office Friday, March 9, AM. I too have this problem with one Outlook user and Exchange Online. Random mails sent from his computer are not being synced with Exchange, therefore not landing in Sent folder.
This is really weird. Friday, March 9, PM. Same problem as well. Got two end users who are on Windows 10 version Tuesday, March 13, PM. Tuesday, March 20, AM. Hi, I have the exact same issue. I ended up to post on this thread see if it helps. We are running Exchange CU15 and Outlook The only ways to make it work is : -restart Outlook and mailboxes stopped updating after few minutes -Force Outlook reconnect using connection status..
The only thing I can think of is an issue with the OAB, as I have the message below in the "outlook connection status" box under "local mailbox" field : "offline address book connecting to microsoft exchange". I wonder if anyone tried that and if it solves the issue.
Update : I do have a log in our Cas server : [Eas] The number of outstanding requests for guard TargetBackend "server-name " has exceeded the max limit Current request will be rejected. Tuesday, March 20, PM. HI Folks. I will test it for few more days to make sure but it worth givin a try on your side. Any feedback appreciated. Wednesday, March 21, PM. What a crappy problem. Hello All We are having this issue in our environment as well for a handful of users. We are running version Hosted online no on-prem servers.
Thanks Ry. Tuesday, March 27, AM. Hi I am also seeing this behavior for one or two of my staff. There are other people, not on cached mode, that access their account. Any one got any further updates? SW Steven Wells. Wednesday, April 4, AM. Wednesday, April 11, AM. I was waiting until we found a situation where it was occurring for a user we were preparing a new computer for so they could continue to use their existing PC while we opened a case with Microsoft since we haven't done this yet despite seeing it for over a year.
But you're saying MS support has been totally worthless on this? Do you know if they're even opening a backend case with engineering on this? And still no KB article?! Wednesday, April 18, PM. Sunday, April 22, PM. I just had to switch a user from cached mode to online mode who was experiencing this issue.
I only see 2 errors in my application log from days ago so I don't think this has anything to do with it unfortunately. Wednesday, May 9, PM. Monday, May 14, PM. Every time I see this it is too many folders in cached mode. The way I usually sort this out is to. If they do, they either need to delete some or run in online mode. This has been the case every single time I have seen it and above has always fixed it. Tuesday, May 15, AM.
Online archive doesn't count towards the folder limit as it's not cached, so it wont be that. Definitely sounds like the same kind of behaviour as the MAPI session limit. Tuesday, May 15, PM. Luckily for me I am having good luck reverting users to and it works in cached mode. What is or doing differently than ? Monday, May 21, PM. Sunday, May 27, AM. So after a few problems like this in the enterprise where I work, it was found that this solution has resolved most of our users issues with this.
Friday, July 6, AM. Friday, July 6, PM. The reg key above makes sense CacheOthersMail to 0 I only see this issue where our staff have another user's mailbox mapped. Wednesday, July 11, AM. Does this apply to Outlook also? Monday, July 16, AM.
This temporary workaround worked for me: 1. Wednesday, July 25, AM. I do not get why it worked. That box is definitely checked on my desktop setup and works fine, but for some reason on my laptop setup that fixed the problem. Thanks again! Thursday, August 16, PM. Thanks to a couple of these posts.. I can confirm on the SBS box, the application event logs did have Event ID for the affected user account on the domain.
Upon investigating the User Account login, the staff member did have access to lots of other shared mailboxes. All were trying to update in cached mode, so upon initially starting Outlook, folders would start to update, then would stop randomly. If I removed one of the large "Shared Mailboxes" from the Outlook view for the same login account, updates in cached mode appeared to work ok As expected. I then entered the reg hack for Outlook to NOT update shared mailboxes in cached mode and only list those shared mailboxes in "Online" mode.
This leaves the primary mailbox in "Cached" mode and continues to update. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: How to back up and restore the registry in Windows To change the shared folder caching behavior in Outlook or later versions to match the default behavior in Office Outlook , you must add a registry value to your Outlook client.

Windows 7 and Windows Vista: Click Start, type regedit. Note If the Cached Mode key does not exist, create this key by following these steps: Select the Outlook key. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click Key.
Select the Cached Mode key and then go to step 4. On the Edit menu, click Modify. Type 0, and then click OK. Exit Registry Editor. Start Outlook. Note This method only affects any new Outlook profiles that you create. Rgds Gerry. Wednesday, September 19, AM. One fix that worked for a user - he said Outlook cached mode work fine at home, but had this same issue at the office, but only on LAN not wireless.
Why this one user? Who knows.
