Email performance when you have GB of email? Which is best? POP, IMAP, Exchange?
Posted on 2013-01-06
I have a new client that has GB of emails spread out over 6 email addressess. 3 are POP with GoDaddy and 3 are IMAP with gmail hosting their domain. Overall, on 2 different PCs he has these setup on - a desktop and laptop - are pretty much crawling when you open outlook. Any idea how to approach increasing the speed?
For say, 15GB of mail, is 1 protocol better than others with POP, IMAP and Exchange?
And the IMAP email accounts have the [gmail]/... files AND local files. That defeats the point of imap, right? Keeping everything on the server?
