We have a remote office with users connected to Exchange 2003 in the main office via an ADSL VPN. These users are trying to move existing mail items from their mailboxes into newly-created public folders. However, they are reporting that for large attachments, the PC just hangs for several minutes. This would suggest that Outlook is actually uploading the whole mail, on average 20MB in size, over the VPN rather than just moving it within Exchange. Can anyone confirm that a drag and drop from Outlook does indeed upload the mail again rather than simple updating the database? If this is the case, are there any workarounds short of advising all staff to visit the main office to move their old mail to public folders?!?!
