How to Fix Sync Issues between MES Mailbox and .OST File in Outlook 2007

Sync issues can occur when you try to synchronize your Microsoft Exchange Server (MES) mailbox with an offline folder (.ost) file in your Outlook 2007. Incorrect profile settings or corrupt MES support files are likely the reasons for sync issues to occur. Check the steps below and fix sync issues between your MES mailbox and .ost files in Outlook:

2. If the Synchronization feature is working fine, you will find that the number of synchronized items is same in both the fields viz. Server folder contains and Offline folder contains.

3. If the numbers are different in both the fields (and even the date is not of today), Synchronization is not working. You must verify and/or modify the profile settings as mentioned below. Click ToolsAccount Settings in Outlook 2007.
