The main functions of Vault Cache are as follows:
It makes Virtual Vault available to users, if you choose to enable Virtual Vault.
It lets offline users open archived items from Enterprise Vault shortcuts.
It lets offline users view their archives in offline Archive Explorer.
Virtual Vault integrates a view of the user's archive into the Outlook Navigation Pane. To users, a Virtual Vault looks like a mailbox or a personal folder, and it behaves in much the same way. For example, users can open archived items and drag and drop items to and from the Virtual Vault.
Figure: Example of a Virtual Vault shows a mailbox and a Virtual Vault in the Outlook Navigation Pane.
Figure: Vault Cache and Virtual Vault shows the relationship between Vault Cache and Virtual Vault, and Vault Cache synchronization with the online archive.
The user can synchronize archives other than their primary mailbox archive to the Vault Cache, if they have the necessary permissions. Each archive that is synchronized to a Vault Cache has its own Virtual Vault, if Virtual Vault is enabled. In Virtual Vault, access to archives other than the user's primary mailbox archive is read-only.
The actions that users can perform in Virtual Vault include the following:
View, forward, and reply to archived items
After opening an email to send from Outlook, drag and drop items from Virtual Vault into the email to send them as attachments
Search the Virtual Vault with Outlook Instant Search, Outlook Advanced Find, or Windows Desktop Search
Delete items and folders
Move items between folders, and reorganize folders
Archive items using drag and drop
Move items into Virtual Vault using Outlook rules
The Vault Cache feature is not available to users of the Enterprise Vault Client for Mac OS X.
