Offline setting in Outlook 2002

Running a laptop with Windows XP SP1 & Outlook 2002.  Outlook is configured 
as a MAPI client (for use w/ Exchange 2000 server).  User also has an .ost 
file configured locally on the laptop.

The laptop is often connected to the corporate network via VPN using a Cisco 
VPN client.  From time to time, while connected via VPN, Outlook goes into 
Offline mode.  Restarting Outlook does not result in the program coming out 
of Offline status.  I've found that the only way to resolve this issue is for 
the user to log off/on again and restart Outlook.

At present, I've configured Outlook to "Manually Control Connection State" 
and to "Connect With the Network."

Does anyone know if there is another way to bring Outlook back into Online 
status without logging off/on?


TIA


Steve

offline cache mode GPO
Good afternoon, I have configured outlook 2003 and exchange 2003 for 150 users. I enabled offline cache mode and forced an automatic send/receive every 5 minutes.

He wasn't getting that error when he hit send and receive. Does anyone know what would cause this? All research I have done says that it is an access issue, or a service pack, windows update issue.
