I have taken over management of an Exchange 2003 server this week. In my assessment of the server, I noticed that 4 of the mailboxes are over 7GB with the largest 3 13, 14, 18GB each. I advised the client that this is way beyond the capabilities of exchange 2003. The users get a few messages each day ending up in sync issue/server failure. They said their previous IT person said it would be ok. I told them he was sorely mistaken.
I had two questions. Does anyone have a server that runs anywhere near that? And second, any ideas on a solution. They need to be able to access the emails quickly. It is a relatively small site with 15 users. Total store size is 65GB.
