Hi Lloyd

I hope you don't object to me stating the obvious. I think this may be worth 
stating to those that subscribe to this argument. Personally I would agree but 
for one problem. Disk space is only as good as your ability to back it up and 
big backup devices are not cheap. A basic Ultrium 3 tape drive costs about 
$5000 and thats without any tapes etc etc. In addition of course as more space 
is used the probability of data corruption or loss increases. Simple logic 
dictates that the more Bytes you have the more chance there is of one getting 

Hope that helps?

   Raj>  We have had experiences when you increase the mailbox sizes for users, 
they will always come back for more after few months. So, housekeeping is the 
most important lesson for the end users. 

  Basically the attitude I have to deal with is, hard drives are a few $$ per 
GB so if users want multi GB mailboxes I should deliver and just keep 
increasing their mail boxes sizes.
