Outlook 2016 public folder not updating

02-Dec-2016 20:42

I right clicked on the "Favorite" that I had just created and selected the "Add to Favorite Folders" view, then it was added to the "Favorite Folders" window in the [MAIL] view.

[more] So in short, "Favorites" and "Favorite Folders" DO NOT mean the same thing.

Microsoft has a hotfix designed to solve this problem. The public folder calendar automatically becomes available in the Other Calendars list.

However, Outlook does not synchronize items in the folders under On My Computer, including the contacts that were created in the local Address Book.

Because not all types of data are synchronized with the Exchange server, any complete plan for backing up data must include a provision for backing up the unsynchronized data on users' computers in addition to backing up the Exchange Server database.

Also, don't forget that for offline use, you can drag any public folder to Public Folders/Favorites and set the Favorites copy to synchronize.

Other than that, Outlook does not provide any built-in mechanism for syncing between Outlook mailboxes and Public folders, hence the list of tools on this page.
