Managing large MS Office for Mac 2011 Identities
Posted on 2013-11-12
I manage several companies whose entire user base consists of Apple devices: iMacs, MacBook Pros, etc.
We have these companies set up with Outlook 2011 connected to Hosted Exchange servers (intermedia, Office 365, etc.).
For the PR/marketing type companies who send/receive tons of email and attachments every day, some of the identities are growing to be 15-25GB.
Has anyone figured out how to manage these unwieldy identities?
On Office for Windows, I would just create a PST archive and make a bunch of 2-4GB archives to improve performance, but there is, of course, no solution that is nearly as elegant for Office for Mac.
Note - I have considered moving emails to the "On my Computer "folders, but this of course just ties into the total identity size anyway.
I keep seeing more and more corruption as these identities get larger.
