About working offline with Enterprise Vault
When Enterprise Vault archives an item from your mailbox, it normally leaves a shortcut that links directly to the archived item. Replacing items with shortcuts saves space in your mailbox. However, if you work offline or you are not connected to your corporate network, double-clicking a shortcut cannot open the item in your online vault.
A Vault Cache provides instant access to archived items, even when you work offline or are not connected to your corporate network. After you have set up a Vault Cache, you can retrieve archived items in the following ways:
Open the items from the corresponding shortcuts in your mailbox.
Open the items from your Virtual Vault.
Note that your administrator may have set up your Vault Cache so that it stores partial archived items. With this type of Vault Cache, the full content of archived items is inaccessible when you do not have a connection to your online vault.
Another possibility is that your Vault Cache stores both partial items and the full content of items that you have opened when you work online. In this case, you can open any previously opened items, even when there is no connection to your online vault.
When you work offline, you cannot perform the following actions using Enterprise Vault buttons or commands:
Store items in a vault.
Restore items from Enterprise Vault shortcuts.
Delete items from a vault.
Display or change the Enterprise Vault properties for a folder.
Migrate PST files to Enterprise Vault.
However, you can use your Virtual Vault to store, restore, and delete items. These actions take effect in the online vault after the next synchronization.
