    MSXServer 2000: Attachment duplicated in Exchange

    Hi,

    Using his Outlook client, if a user attaches a 1Mb attachment & sends it to 500 users from the Global Address List - will it be saved in the Exchange Database as a 1Mb email sent, or will it cause the database to increase in filesize by 500Mb?

    Thanks.

    What kind of coursework are you taking, it_student?

    One of the theoretical benefits of server-based mail systems is that pointers can be stored rather than duplicates. Thus, I would expect Exchange Server to store only 500 pointers and one actual blob of data, but... I actually don't know the true answer to your question.

    exchange is single instance storage in most cases, so it will be 1 mb - it'll actually be a bit higher due to overhead, but not anywhere near 500 mb. There are some instances where some people might have a copy that is not from the sis though... but again, it's not going to be near 500 mb.

    Hey people, I appreciate your replies, they are useful.

    My username is it_student, but I am not a student! It's just reflecting my poise on this board, that I am here to learn from my more experienced fellow loungers.
