“Enterprise Ready”

Posted By on December 26, 2010

Some months ago, I discovered at work that my email was over quota.

Q: Why do we have email quotas?

A: We set them on the server because after some amount of space, Outlook/Exchange corrupts your mailbox, and we’d much rather have that corruption happen on your desktop than on the server.

Q: Well, it’s nice to know that Microsoft’s products are so “enterprise ready”, considering that I’ve had multi-gigabyte mailboxes stored on Unix machines over the past fifteen years or so and not had an issue.
