This topic describes what happens during the download table state of the replication state machine.

State Identifier:


Related Data Structure:


From this state:

Synchronize contents state

To this state:

Synchronize contents state

Note Note

The replication state machine is a deterministic state machine. A client departing from one state to another must eventually return to the former from the latter.

This state initiates downloading a folder. During this state, Outlook initializes the associated DNTBL data structure with information about the folder. The client downloads the folder contents, and updates the folder on the local store with new contents, modifications, or deletions from the server. The download process adopts Microsoft Exchange Incremental Change Synchronization (ICS). For more information on ICS, see ICS Evaluation Criteria.

When this state ends, the local store returns to the synchronize contents state.
