we just converted to Office 2013. In setting up Outlook 2013, a question came to mind on what would be a good "standard" for the size of the Outlook.pst files. I was reading that if they get to large (inbox) is can cause crashes/freezes. Is it a good practice to set a maximum size in the registry? I know that controls the pst file size, but what should I do with users that have THOUSANDS of emails in his inbox. He doesn't move them to subfolders or archive them. I know I can also set up an auto archive.
But, I guess what I am mainly asking, how large can the INBOX be before it starts to cause problems? I need some numbers/facts to get this across to the users so they move to subfolders, archive, or delete.
