    EMBC Mail

    Who uses EMBC mail via OWA or Outlook exchange connector? Each user gets 50Mb of storage which is pitiful at best we have a new member of admin staff who has only been here for a couple of months and they've already filled that. Their predecessor also filled their mail box and we had to move them onto POP3 so mail was stored locally in the end, the problem with this is that they then can't see this mail when working from home.

    How do others cope with this issue do you just host your own mail servers?

    Cheers.

    I refuse to use it as my main site has it's own in-house exchange server. - I have set rules up so when they decide to send anything through to it I get a copy but I've only had three emails to it in the last god knows how many years...

    I've just been told that they should all be 200Mb now, i'll look into it tomorrow.



    @ korifugi, can you give me a rough idea how much it costs to licence Exchange, what are the hidden costs or is it just a server license and the CAL's?

    Our mailboxes are 200Mb but still not enough for the office staff.
    I have raised the prospect of exchange a few times but nothing has happened yet.

    Also Kori, what do you mean by send things through to it? I'm wondering if I'm missing mailboxes somewhere...

    We do have schools agreement but we would only want enought licences for admin and maybe teaching staff the students can stay on EMBC. Does SA mean you have to licence every desktop?

    With SA you always pay per machine don't you. So do you not have an SA to cover all your machines? If so then I'm sure Exchange CALs are covered in this; according to what I was told by resellers anyway.

    I was under the impression that if you added something to SA then you had to buy it for all of the machines. We have 500 desktops but I can't just licence Office for 300 of them, so with Exchange we can't just but 50 CALs we would have to get 500.

    Right?

    We have our own on-site mail server. We use Mdaemon from AltN. The limits set are in relation to the size of storage you have onsite.

    Hmm. Is there different school agreements? I was under the illusion that you paid the 20 quid or whatever per machine and this included the OS, Office and associated CALs for the likes of Exchange? So if you have licenced 500 machines then 50 or 500 of them can use Exchange. Have I been fed wrong info?

    I know that Office and Windows licences are seperate as are CALs you can have SA with just the OS and CAL's if you run Open Office. I don't know about exchange but SQL cals aren't included we had to add them on for SIMS.
