IT Business Edge contributor Pah Mah wrote Monday in his blog on SMB Tech that an abundant amount of e-mail had accumulated on his computer, thus restricting his computer performance. The message for small businesses: Simple housekeeping can keep you from having to spend more on a larger server to house all of the e-mail.
There are many other ways to maintain optimal e-mail performance. Knowledge Network partner The Computer Guy gives users the documents entitled Exchange, Outlook Procedures and Tips and Restrict Users from Sending and Receiving Internet E-mail with Microsoft Exchange Server. These two documents help users out on functions such as limiting mailbox storage and creating mailbox manager policies, in addition to numerous other functions relating to Microsoft E-mail products.
