Thank u so much for your answer, Chris. My users are chewing me up
because they want to store their e-mails in the same place as their
other files (.xls, .doc, etc.)... I don't know what to say to convince
them that it's not good to have lots of .msg files in a folder.

Have them save to a PST file on a server with Public Shares with
permissions
only to themselves(for security).  This way, you keep your exchange
Database
small, and can backup and restore the files on a separate server without
having to bring down your e-mail in such an event.

In your opinion... what's best when users have to save e-mails:
 - put them in Exchange PUBLIC FOLDERS
 - save them on a SHARED NETWORK FOLDER (as an .msg file) ?

My first inclination is to direct everybody to use Public Folders (feels
like it's the "native" location & platform for e-mails)...

...but there's the following dilemma:
   - e-mails have files attached often, and I tell my users to save
these to
a network share and NOT keep them attached inside the e-mail (2
reasons: to minimize Exchange database size, and so that they can be
indexed
for searches, etc)...
   - but then they want to keep the e-mail too, and hate having two
locations (Public Folders AND Network Share) to go to for info relating
to
the same project...

Is there anything wrong with saving e-mails to disk as a file? What's
the
"best practice"?

Thanks for your wisdom on this subject...

Alfonso
