Re: Mailbox sizes... WTF...?!?!?!

said by Hall:

Must be nice.... at my old job, a major corporation, they still restricted users to a 500mb mailbox. Anything above that, you have to store locally. Now, I'm not saying give every users a multi-gigabyte mailbox, but 500mb was painful to work with.

Bigger companies tend to have smaller email sizes. I am working for the largest organisation I have worked work for and we have the smallest mailbox size.

Some of their arguments against larger mailboxes were in turn related to the number of users: Larger mailboxes x 10,000+ users is a lot of disk space, # of backup tapes req'd, etc

Realistically though, not every user will max out their quota.

Ironically, we were nailed by Sarbanes-Oxley for data retention, but IT still made it the user's problem to handle.
