Default Folder redirection limitations? Exchange 2007

Hello,

Quick question:

Anyone have 'real-world' advice, with regard to folder redirection? Limitations? Degradation issues?

I have an Exchange 2007 user with a 5 GB mailbox (approx), who has decided he wants folder redirection enabled for ALL of his subfolders.

His 'status' dictates that I must make this work for him.

Thanks!
Tom

In THEORY this shouldn't be a problem. When the BlackBerry runs out of memory it should just start dumping email (oldest first). A long time ago on an 8700 running OS 4.2(?) I tried setting "Keep For..." to Forever. It worked for almost 9 months (light-moderat email), but one day the device just gagged and stopped. A batter pull and setting it to 6 months cured the problem right up. My advice is to warn the user that they could lose use of their BlackBerry at an inopportune moment, advise them of the cure and let them do what they want. BTW, Saved messages are never purged - they must be deleted manually. Even if the device gags and dumps old email, it won't dump Saved Messages. Same thing for Delete Prior.

I have numerous 20GB+ mailboxes with lots of folders enabled with redirection, no issues. One thing to note that when you're dealing with large mailboxes it really helps to have BES running on a 64-bit version of windows, this way each (32-bit) agent process can consume up to 4GB of ram if needed. In my case my BES servers (~700 users per BES) use a little over 4GB of RAM and I run BAS on the same servers as the messaging agents.

On more thing to keep in mind... if a specific folder gets too large you could run into problems (with BES & Outlook) we advise out users to keep make sure no one folder has more than 5000 items in it (Outlook 2007 in cached mode performance recontamination from MS)

Regards,
M@
