Not sure about Cache mode degrading at greater than 1Gb, do you have any
documentation about this?

I don't think there's really anything that can facilitate this process.
Yes, when these users enable cached mode, they are essentially going to
download all their mail into an .ost file. Now you would have to have
your users copy the contents of their .pst file to their mailbox so they
can have access to it for webmail for example. However, keep in mind
that if your users have more than 1GB of mail in their .pst and they
wish to import that into their mailbox using cached mode, client
performance will degrade as cached mode works optimally at less than

-------------------------------------------------------Okay, have a
client running exchange 2003 at west coast location, we have
several users in Central Canada who have been connecting via pop3s and
These users were running Outlook 2000 and have recently been upgraded to
outlook 2003 so their pst files are still of the older non-unicode

Now I've sent these staff the information to get them connecting to the
exchange server via vpn (can't run rpc over https as the dc is still
and I need to figure out the best way to migrate them.

Essentially I want to have them use Exchange Cached mode and continue to
the same pst file they currently use (after creating a unicode one and
copying the contents to it).

What's the best way of going about this?

Essentially I don't want to have the caching re-download all the mail
they already downloaded via pop3. Is this even possible?
