OK experts, I'm looking for your feedback/comments/recommendations regarding the size of a mailbox on Exchange 2010 versus usability and efficiency. Let me explain:

We've got a very standard single server Exchange 2010 setup. There's about 250 mailboxes on the server spread across 3 separate data stores. For the most part things are working just fine. Then there's our CEO. All quota caps have been removed for his mailbox (per his request), so here's the stats on his current mailbox:

Total Items: 169,365
Size: 3,217,831 KB

He uses Outlook 2010 on a PC in our office. He has an iPhone, two iPads, and MacBook Air that connect to his mailbox through the built-in apps on those devices. He seems to have nothing but trouble trying to get everything to stay in sync. I'm curious if this is possibly related to the overall size and number of items in his mailbox.

I use a Mac primarily and also have an iPhone and iPad connected to my Exchange account. I do not experience any syncing trouble. In general, I don't hear from much of anyone else regarding the kinds of problems he runs in to.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Past experience? I'd like to hear from you.
