<rant>Easy mail, got to love it, because we have got to use it. :(
So the problem I had the other day was that we had allocated more than our 100mb extra storage space to our users. It threw a wobbly then refused to add more users. This Despite the fact that several of our users are 3 - 4 times over their limit.
So to increase the space would cost £115 per year for an additional 500mb storage.
Thats not per user, that my friends is the whole storage increase spread over all users! Now in the days of free email, with storage in excess of 2 - 3 gigs per account this seems just a tad unfair.
Google is providing 100 free email accounts to our school website, all with 2 gigs of storage space and with the advantage that it has 99.9% uptime, and its quick! And we can have more if we want, we just have to ask.
But we cannot change over, because "its what everyone uses, we might miss some emails" :(
If only we could afford to go over to exchange. </rant>
