    Exchange - mail

    We are currently using MS Outlook Mail Exchange 3.5. I have just learned that we never remove a name from the GAL even if the person is no longer working here. Is there a limit on how many Users we can add before we start having problems? What other issues could we have by not removing them?

    > MS Outlook Mail Exchange 3.5

    ???

    Exchange Server 5.5, 2000, or 2003 maybe?

    As for the size of a GAL, I don't know if there is a limit, but I'm sure the number if quite large.

    That should have said 5.5.

    Re: Exchange - mail

    Exchange 5.5 - unlike later versions - keeps a completely separate database of employees from Windows Server. I would suspect that the policy of never deleting any names was simply to avoid "orphaning" a user from a mail account. Seeing from another thread that you look to be migrating to Exchange 2003, this issue should cease in future. As part of the upgrade to 2003, there will automatically be an exhaustive comparison between Exchange 2003 and Windows Server 2003 and dull matching of all operative accounts.

    With 2003, it is not possible to have a mail account without a full network logon. (Nor is it possbile to have more than one mail account.)
