There might be situations where the Kerio Connect Offline Edition (KOFF) cache cannot be cleared within Microsoft Outlook. There are also other situations that require the implementation of a Group Policy Object (GPO) to clear the KOFF cache on a domain-wide basis. This article provides instructions to help clear the KOFF cache.
This process requires access to the client PC's hidden files and folders.
The data from the KOFF profile is stored by default in the following folder on the client's machine.
C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Kerio\Outlook Connector\<profile name>
Normally, to clear the KOFF cache, end-users must go to their account settings in MS Outlook and locate the Maintenance tab.
The KOFF profile folder will be deleted after the Empty cache action is applied. This only takes effect after exiting MS Outlook.
Open Windows Explorer > View > and enable Hidden items.
Navigate to the following folder.
Select the folder corresponding to the Outlook profile to be cleared.Note: If the same MS Outlook profile hosts multiple KOFF accounts, the other accounts' cache will be stored in the same profile folder. To avoid deleting the entire cache folder containing all the other accounts, each profile will be separated into subfolders in the parent profile folder. The user must select the correct subfolder corresponding to the account to be cleared when clearing the cache.
After confirming the correct folder to delete, close MS Outlook.
Right-click the profile folder, and select Delete from the dropdown menu.
The KOFF profile will be reset and the account data will rebuild from the beginning. When the user logs back into MS Outlook, they will see an initial synchronization message.
