I am running Exchange 2003 enterprise SP2 on a Dell Poweredge 2800, dual 3GHZ xeon with 4GB RAM.
I have approx 80 users, of which about 40 are using the system at any one time. My mailbox database is now 29GB and public folders is 5GB. Several users have mailboxes of 3 to 4GB and most are between 300 and 400MB.
Can anybody advise whether I have any cause for concern about the size of the database and the mailboxes? I have noticed that Outlook is getting a little slow to respond but apart from that everything seems to work OK.
Would i see any performance benefit I have a clampdown and reduce the mailbox and database size? Is the database more liable to corruption the larger it gets?
