    Complainers = Zero

    By the way, I found out Friday that not a single user complained when we deleted those 6 million documents.  Definitely a tribute to excellent communications by the client's Notes team.

    Or maybe it's because they really didn't need those 6 million documents that they've been saving of their friends brothers kids 4th birthday party from 2001. ; )

    I totally agree. I was working for a large Pharma company a few years ago and had a 1 gb mail file. They established a 500 MB limit and I hastily created a local archive for all of my "important stuff". 6 months later I realized I had never gone back to look at anything. It taught me a valuable lesson about throwing things away.

    I think if you set reasonable limits people will stick to them. 500 MB is a reasonable limit. 150 MB, in my opinion, is not.

    But I also like to think of them as guidelines. I think that preventing a user from sending mail because they are over the limit is draconian and cuts the productivity of the user.

    Could be worse, on of my customers enforces a 50MB limit. 14 MB out of that 50 MB consists of Design Elements? Oh yes, we took that into account...

    @3 You really should consider moving their mail files on to a Single Copy Template. It will eliminate some of the design element info. From 14 MB probably down to 1 or 2 MB.

    Just a thought anyway - this of course assumes the client is on Notes/Domino 6 and later.
