Huge Outlook Mailboxes
Posted on 2011-09-20
I have a broad-scope kind of question, regarding Outlook mailboxes, for IT managers out there.
Our users have been corresponding with biz partners for the last decade, predominantly through Outlook. We have some mailboxes that exceed 20 GB; each mailbox is cached on the user's workstation. Additionally, many users need to access/share multiple mailboxes, and since they use Outlook Anywhere this means that we have several HUGE cached profiles on one laptop.
I can't demand that my users delete their business info... on the other hand, I don't understand how some businesses can afford to globally dictate that mailboxes remain under 1 GB (for example). Any suggestions out there for mailbox management?
(We use Exchange 2007 and Outlook 2007)
