Our Domino mail files: 892 files in the mail directory 93,215,921,664 bytes =104mb/user However the top 5 users: 2,254,962,688 - vp of marketing is queer for mailing power point presentations 1,538,785,280 1,347,944,448 1,289,748,480 1,282,670,592 We have 28 people over 500,000,000 and several close to that. You can set limits, but we don't. We've discovered the cost of disk is cheaper than the cost of cleanup. I will say, the R5 Domino Administrator does a quick job of sorting by file, and listing the user and stuff.

Well, the Exchange quote had 1TB of storage (WAY overkill in my opinion - about 1.25GB/user!) and I requested a 400GB quote with the iSeries DSD. We'll have between 700 and 800 users and will probably either use the iNotes for Outlook as a standard or the Web Access. With 400GB, that's still 500MB per user (at 800 users). I believe we could even go with half that to begin with - or less. I've been "volunteered" to help our PC guys convert all of our users to Windows 2000 and that includes backing up their email. The largest email file I've backed up is 60 MB and most of that file was in the Trash folder! I know that some users will "need" maybe 500MB, but the vast majority may use only 10MB. I guess this is just my rant for the day...
