Quantity of e-mail/bandwidth issues (not urgent, just questions)
Posted on 2006-06-21
I'm currently looking in to the usage of our exchange 2003 server. We have a lot of emails that go from one user to another user within the company that contain a good 1 line of text. I just wanted to know if there is any way to figure out how many emails are sent per day from one user in the domain to any other user in the domain. A running total of the company per day is what I'm looking for not detailed information about one user.
And beyond that, would employees running instant messaging services instead of e-mailing those one-liners decrease or increase network bandwidth? I know that it will decrease internet bandwidth because of the connection between say your AIM and the AIM servers but I guess what I was just curious about was the extent at which it would effect it in relation to all the wasted lines of code and processes for the one-liner emails
Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated
