Outlook 2016 Cached Exchange Mode Sync Setting is displayed incorrectly in GPMC

Applies to: Outlook 2016Outlook for Office 365Outlook 2019

Symptoms


When you use the Microsoft Outlook 2016 administrative template to configure the Cached Exchange Mode Sync Setting policy to "One week", "Two weeks", or "All", the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) does not differentiate between these options, and it always shows "Three days" when you reopen the management console.

More Information


This only affects the way that the setting is displayed in GPMC. Actually, the Cached Exchange Mode Sync Setting policy works correctly as it's configured.

Note You can also configure the cache mode setting by using the SyncWindowSetting and the SyncWindowSettingDays registry keys. For more information, see Update lets administrators set additional default Sync Slider windows for new Exchange accounts in Outlook 2016.
