One of my customers Outlook keeps hanging he is blaming our exchange server but i strongly suspect it is related to a 30GB and 20GB archive data pst files he has attached.
We have hundreds of other customers and no one else complains so i dont believe its the exchange server.
PST scanfix tool reported corruptions on these and apparently were fixed.
Customer is not prepared to archive off the messages with larger attatchments to his file system so we can merge remaining mail to his ost exchange mailbox (his inbox limit is 25GB).
He now wants exchange removed and going back to POP3 but i strongly suspect the hanging problem will remain.
Couple of questions:
If Microsoft consider 5GB a large pst size what is their definition of 50GB of pst files?
What is the actual limit of pst files that outlook can handle but remain stable?
Why does pst corruption occur?
What else can be done to stop outlook crashing?
