Last fall I installed a new server and Exchange 2003. All is working great, but I am seeing peoples mailboxes begin to balloon. Mailboxes have gone from 250 to over 800 meg in the past 6 months. We are a small company, and we DO have the diskspace and processing power at this point to handle as much as people want to throw at it. My concern is that as time goes on, poor mailbox maintenance practices become commonplace and that large mailboxes could become troublesome.
Does anyone out there have any information about any performance considerations with Exchange 2003 and large mailboxes?
Do you have any reasons that larger mailboxes are problematic or arguments for maintaining smaller mailboxes?
Thanks for your help.
