Exchange and Other Email Accounts
It is possible to have both an Exchange account and a POP/IMAP email account defined as part of
the same Outlook profile. In this situation, both sets of folders will be displayed in the navigation
pane. However, some people who have both kinds of accounts prefer to set up a separate Outlook
profile for each account, to avoid confusion. Setting up profiles was covered in Chapter 3.
When using Cached Exchange Mode, all folders are kept synchronized. You can also perform a
manual synchronization by pressing F9. This is useful when, for example, you want to ensure that
your local data is completely up to date. You may want to specify which folders are synchronized
when a manual synchronization is performed. For example, you may want to manually
synchronize only mail items and let your other folders be synchronized during the automatic updates. To
change manual send/receive settings:
Select Send/Receive from the Tools menu.
Select Send Receive Settings and then select Define Send/Receive Groups. Outlook
displays the Send/Receive Groups dialog box, shown in Figure 28.3. (Note: To quickly open
this dialog box without using the menus, press Ctrl+Alt+S.)
If you have more than one group name, select the one that includes your Exchange
Changing manual send/receive settings for your Exchange account.
