I had to do this at my end early on when I converted into Exchange from
a POP3 world. My bosses strait up told me they would stand behind me in
forcing users into a stricter standard. The hitch? My bosses were the
worst offenders and stated they could not be affected by this policy,
they were "above the law". Good Luck! P.S. (The CEO & VP's average a 1GB
mailbox each and often have 10-15 thousand messages still in their inbox
& they complain when web acces for them is slow! DUH)

I gave the bosses a paper listing cost of upgrading server to overcome
limitations; hardware and software. They quickly jumped on the
housekeeping bandwagon.

This is an interesting phenomenon, and one I currently face. Does anyone
have any effective strategies for laying down the law and telling one's
boss that he has to reduce the size of his mailbox? :) Serious question
