I am having several issues with Outlook clients and it seems that everything is 
resolved temporarily by doing an "Exit and Log Off" from Outlook.  The issues 
do not resolve when doing a "Exit" from Outlook.  We are seeing 2 issues:

        1)  Users leave Outlook open overnight and when they come in the next 
day they are not getting Internet email.  We do an Exit and Log Off, Log back 
on and      the Internet email starts flowing in (we are downloading Internet 
email from POP3).
        2)  Users open Outlook the next day and they receive appointment 
reminders from previous days (appointments that they have dismissed in the 
past) and they      do not receive new appointments until they "Exit and Log 

Can someone tell me the differences in Exit Vs. Exit and Log Off.  It the "Log 
Off" simply disconnecting from Exchange?  I have searched for this topic and 
cannot find exactly what I am looking for.  Hoping someone could increase my 
knowledge on this topic.
