EMail and Staff Storage Policy
My apologies if this is repeating a previous thread or indeed if this is in the wrong forum.
Basically I plan on tightening the relaxed rules my predecessor setup as after scanning the staff server for data it has been made apparent that staff are taking the P:censored::censored:S.
Scanning through profiles and home directories I found one user who was taking up 40GB of data on the server :eek: 24GB was in the home directory and the remaining 16GB was in the profile WTF
Others on the network are no better there are MP3's movies on the network all being downloaded by LimeWire. I am planning on introducing quotas on the home directories but wanted to know if any of you do this and what limits you set.
I have also been asked by the SMT to block access to any third party webmail as staff should only use the school provided exchange.
The SMT also want the emails monitored as many staff are sending emails during lessons and the SMT want to put a stop to this.
I know exchange has the message tracking function has anyone used this feature? I know it tells you the sender, recipient and subject of the email but I was more concerned about any legal implications this may have.
Any thoughts and comments would be greatly appreciated.
