Setting corporate mail file size policies on NSF files

SearchDomino.com expert Chuck Connell examines what to consider when setting corporate mail file size policies.

We are currently using iNotes 6 on a Notes Domino 6.5.2 server infrastructure with unlimited mail file size limitations. Is there a documented threshold that I can provide to management? If so, can you tell me where to find it? I want to set a corporate policy on mail file sizes, but need documented proof of the thresholds first.
There is effectively no limit on the size of NSF files. So, you can think about what limit works for your organization. Base the limit on how much disk space you are willing to give each person and how powerful your server is (bigger files run slower).
