Depends on the mail server. Your mail client (Outlook) isn't really relevant. Outlook supports a number of mail protocols. Reconciliation is possible with some of them and not possible with others.
IIRC integrating your account via OWA with BIS might enable the type of reconciliation that you're looking for.
