Outlook 2003 "OFFLINE" issue.


Since we upgraded the Exchange 2003 to SP2, some of our users encountered an 
issue where their Outlook client 2003 were "Offline" by itself. The users 
need to manually uncheck the "Work Offline" to reconnect the server. As far 
as i know, if there is a network issue, it should be "Disconnected", I did 
simulate this by unplug the network cable.

Is there any issue with SP2 ? Please help...

I am having the same problem.  At first I thought it was a windows thing with 
a SID and the domain but now I think it is Outlook and some problem with the 
Exchange server.  Did you find anything out?  I wonder if cached mode has 
anything to do with it.  Does anyone out there have any ideas?

SQL Server Error when going offline MS CRM 4.0
Hi We have quite a few problems with the MS CRM 4.0 Offline Client. When our customer tries to go offline he gets always an SQL Server Error. When we execute the diag tool it shows us that something is wrong with the sync. After executing the repair it works fine and we can go offline without any troubles. The strange thing is, that it does not work on the next day. Then we get the same error again. The only solution is to execute the repair....

Order Form in Offline Mode
Hi, a prospect wanted us to check the possibility of changing the process of adding products to the order. They dont like to see too many windows, would it be possible to create a grid (similar to excel) which would display all their products (as listed in MSCRM Product Catalogue) and use this as their entry form instead of the default CRM form? I know that this might be possible using SDK by adding a Side Tab and doing the order creation process through codes, but would it be possible to make use of this from within Sales For Outlook UI? this form if you created it would work in the...

Problem going "Online" after going "offline" with laptop Client
Hi! I have a user who uses the laptop client of CRM and when he clicks "Go Offline" in Outlook, it syncs down everything he owns from crm without issue, and then works fine disconnected. However the problem is when he plugs back into the network and wants to "Go Online". When he clicks the Go Online button it says something along the lines of CRM could not find or could not communicate with the CRM server. I fixed it once thinking it was a fluke by uninstalling the MSDE (and db) and the laptop client and reinstalling it all (a rather long process), but when he did it ag...

Folder Redirection & Offline Files
I have recently enabled folder redirection for My Documents. I noticed after I first did this Offline Files would become enabled the first time I logged on to a PC on the domain. And I'd have to manually turn it off. I found a KB that was supposed to fix that problem; under User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Network>Offline Files, I enabled the policy for "Do not automatically make redirected folders available offline". But it still turns on Offline Files the first time I login to a PC. Is there another way to disable that, one that works? Th...

Cannot access "Opportunities" when offline in Outlook client
I get an "authentication error" when trying to access Opportunities when Offline in the Outlook CRM 3.0 client. Other folders (leads, contact, etc seem OK). Any ideas on how to correct this.

Going Offline in Outlook with CRM
When some of users, using the CRM laptop outlook client, try to go offline, they receive an error message to the effect of "CRM Outlook cannot go offline. CRM server not found or user does not have sufficient privileges". They can access the server fine when online, so we're tending to think it's a permissions problem. However, their roles have the Go Offline and Go Mobile permissions allowed. Anyone have any ideas? Just a thought but maybe the local rights on the laptop prevent the system from sychronising?
