Hi Chris,
In all mail client, create a service "Personal Folder" and in properties
specify the desired local path / network path where you want to keep your
".pst" files. Configure such that, mails are delivered to the personal
folders. This way your mail box size will be small in size and will enhance
the peformance.

Subject: [exchangelist] Mailbox Size

I have a couple users that are stubborn about archiving and shift-deleting
(much to my consternation), and their mailboxes are approaching 500MB in
size. What kind of concerns should I have in regards to Information Store
problems, server performance, etc. because of their overly large mailboxes?


We have less than 25 Exchange users (all with our mailboxes on the server)
and the server is an AMD 1.4GHz with 1GB RAM.
