    What you are requesting is a bit difficult to archieve and not supported by PDQ Inventory.

    This "Outlook 2010 cached mode registry entry" article on TechNet might help you. Read the comments and the posted scripts.

    Jens,

    There are 2 limitations in the current version of PDQ Inventory that make this difficult.

    First, binary values in the registry are stored in a way that makes them difficult to filter.  They are stored and filtered as an encoded valued (base 64 encoding).  This has been changed for version 2, so they are stored as the same representation shown in regedit.exe, so you can search for values like '84 01 00 00'.

    Second, and more importantly, it can only scan registry hives which are currently loaded, and this is typically only the logged on user (though there are some circumstances where some user hives stay loaded after they log out).  We are working on a solution, but don't have it just yet.

    There is yet one another possibility to determin tha mode used.

    According a post on http://serverfault.com/questions/54989/how-can-i-determine-users-that-are-not-connecting-using-cached-exchange-mode

    Get-LogonStatistics “UserName” | FL Name, ClientName, ClientMode

    mode = 0/1/2 0 = 'unknown' and seems to indicate pre-Outlook 2003 or some other clients like blackberry. 1 = Online mode 2 = Cached mode
