Saving mail locally

I want my LAN users to save their mail locally.  Many of my mail users file their files in the mail system.  These are large MS Office files! I can't seem to get them to use their NW drives for this.  I want them to have their mail on their local drives and a minimal amount of mail on the server.  They need to access their old mails fairly often.  Archiving probably isn't an option.

any ideas?

you only choice is , i think, is to archive locally, or to have them detach thes edocuments to local /network drive locations , then remove the mail.

Hi ellem,

Did you check on the archiving frequency to avoid complications ???

The only solution i see is to make a local COPY of the mail database. To make an action button in it which copies the new mails on the mail database(which is on the server) to the copy mail database and deletes them from the server.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Have you tried shared mail ?

If most of the mails with big attachments are sent to many employees (probably by using group name in address  book), enabling the shared mail option on the server should reduce the space needed noticably. Because instead of having duplication of the same attachments in each of every employees mail databases, the server will keep only once copy of the attachment in the shared mail database and send references/pointers to the users included in the list.

-- I see what you are saying... But that won't work with my users.

-- I can't believe that the crummy Netscape email client can put mail on the local drive while leaving some (say a month's worth) on the server.

-- There has to be a way to do this!

Hi Ellem,

Can't you do something with a local replica ? Let the uers create a local replica with the attachments in them and set,in the replication settings from this maildatabase (on the server),
"Do not sent deletions made in this replica to other replicas". You can find this option in the "Send" catagory.
Now let them empty the maildatabase on the server.....

I haven't tried this out for you, but give it a trie .....

Greetings Bob !!!
