    Limitations on Public Folder sizes & users (OutlookXP)

    I am importing a few thousand contacts into an Outlook Address book. The address book will be used by about 50 people.
    What are the limitations on:
    1: the number of concurrent users
    2: the size of Public folders
    3: the amount of information that can be stored in a "Notes" field in a Contact

    1) none, but the more concurrent, the slower access might be. it depends on your network
    2) it's dependant on the exchange version - at least 16,000, probably 65,000 to unlimited contacts. KB-wise, limited only by the size of the database.
    3) i forget if there is a limit, if so it's like 1024 characters, but i don't think there is unless you are moving items from a Unicode store to ANSI. (Ol2003) Copy text from a word document and see how much you can paste - then count the characters using Word's word count toolbar. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
