We are a 27 employee company. We have outsourced our e-mails to MailTrust and are using IMAP with Outlook 2007 and Entourage 2008. We have a full T1 connection. I setup everyone so Outlook checks for mail every 6 minutes. We have users with 6-7GB of emails and some of them have 4000 emails in their Inbox.
I have noticed that during the work hours our internet speed if extremely slow, b/c this IMAP process is sucking up all the bandwidth.
I was wondering if you guys knew a way to optimize or adjust certain settings in Outlook 2007 so our internet bandwidth does not get destroyed.
Any ideas out there? Thank you very much in advance.
