I have an Exchange user with an ost size of 168GB.
Almost 10 years of emails that were quite frequently the preferred method of transferring large files.
As of right now, the user has to restart the outlook program completely to receive new emails.
Explanations of OST file size max limits have been dismissed, and the task of finding a solution that did not require slower searching was given.
Their Outlook configuration must follow these rules.
1. All emails have to be instantly searchable, once a search has been made there should be no point at which the user is required to click "see more"
2. All of the emails must be available instantly on the user's iPhone.
3. No attachment size limits, the user prefers emailing themselves files for a sort of pseudo ftp server.
The machine that runs it is a Mac Mini running Bootcamp Windows 7 Pro. This is also a strict requirement as the decor of the office must remain Macs that function as PCs
Any suggestions at this point are welcome.
