No need for NETBEUI, IPX or TCP/IP will do as well.

We ahve fount that if our environment, many large subnet, that overall network traffic is reduced by having both TCP/ip and Netbeui installed.  Main reason is mail.  Most of our employes are sending mail to other users within their subnet.  Netbeui handles this trafic well while TCP/IP handles the mail trafic that crosses subnet or the internet .

by what degree (%) has your network traffic decreased, and for what reason?  It's not that I doubt what you have found, I am just interested in the numbers.
