I have Exchage 2003 and so far when setting accounts it appears they must be set to cached or they can only remain on the server. If cached using OWA allows the eamil to reamain on the server but if Outlook 2003 used all email gets down loaded. Which makes back up and restore a bit difficult. I'm sure its the something simple I've missed in the docs as well as digging around in my own my own research. Thanks for your time Dan PS Sorry about the poor typing but I broke my should last week and all my timing is off as well as my head.
