Online Mode (without downloading data from server)


We are looking at eM Client to possible replace outlook for a group of our users. These users are running on Virtual machines and the less we can store on their profile, the better.

Outlook has the option to view the mailbox in Online Mode - as opposed to cached mode where is stores the mailbox on the local machine (ost file).

I was wondering if this software has the same feature. In pop mailboxes, there is a setting to leave messages on server but we are using Exchange server and we wish for all messages to remain on server instead of being downloaded locally.


Hi John, unfortunately it is not possible to run eM Client with Exchange while data are not synchronized. eM client is using the standard Exchange Web Services protocol to synchronize all your items continuously.

“Online mode” is unfortunately not supported.
