This is pretty wishful thinking but I was wondering if it's possible to limit the size of the .zdb file?
We had all our users using Outlook with Exchange which obviously worked well. We've got a few users with pretty monster mailboxes (~5-8GB with 10,000+ messages in single folders!)
This is causing them to have big .zdb files which can't be good for performance.
Also having to resync the zdb after upgrade/restore is pretty brutal.
I've thought about switching these users to Thunderbird/IMAP as that could make things a bit easier but the users in question are not particularly computer-literate so the thought of teaching them something new fills me with violence
Is there a way to limit the size of the .zdb file to say 1GB?
Or another way round it would be to only storing the last 30/60/whatever number of days' mail in the zdb, and anything older is just the headers
