Client with 50GB exchange mailbox
Question asked by Mike Saunders - October 14, 2014 at 10:42 PM

Hi
 
I have a new client who has a 50gb exchange mailbox with her current provider, however she wants to move away from them urgently....
 
I was just going to get her an office 365 account and then i thought would smartermail be able to handle it???.
 
she currently has her mailbox setup in outlook 2010 on her pc and also on her phone and ipad and she does not have any issues, everything just works... as it does with exchange.
 
so can smartermail handle a 50gb mailbox successfully to the same level as exchange? if so how???
 
any advice would be greatly appreciated
 
thanks
Mike

We moved a major steel company onto SmarterMail and several members of their Board of Directors had 90+ gig mailboxes.
 
Yes, SmarterMail can handle the task, just make certain you have the bandwidth, processor speed, memory and drive space to handle the queries and data transfer.

You raise an interesting question, but I need a clarification.
 
The title of your original post is "Client with 50GM Exchange Mailbox."  Are you going to implement ActiveSync and Exchange web services and give her the SmarterMail Exchange experience? 
 
If so, and you don't already have those two add-ons licensed, you will have to license them to work with your SmarterMail installation.
 
Getting back to the question of IMAP vs EXCHANGE, you might want to read this TechNet article from the Exchange Team Blog:
 
 
As you will see, it's not the size of the mailbox, but the number of items which seems to the root cause of synchronization issues.  According to everything I have read, and seen, IMAP might actually be the better way to handle this account.

This will also be dependent on a number of other factors:
  • How will she access her e-mail?
  • Does she also want to synch her contacts, calendar, and notes?
  • What kind of mobile device operating system will she use?
     
    • Android
    • iOS
    • Windows Phone
    • Firefox OS
    • Sailfish OS
    • Tizen
    • Ubuntu Touch OS
    • Blackberry
       
  • What other clients will she be accessing her e-mail with?
