Just because I’m 8 years behind the curve when it comes to website design doesn’t mean I should give up before I even begin. I’ve discovered that website design and construction is something I genuinely enjoy doing, and something that I spend a good bit of my personal time doing even though I technically don’t have that kind of time available.
I recently had a frustrating time trying to set the maximum email size limits in our new Exchange 2007 server. Back in the Exchange 2003 days there were only 2 places I needed to know about in order to control the message size limits: the Global properties controlled the default settings, and you could override those by changing a user’s mailbox on an individual level, in Active Directory.
It’s been a little dry here this last week as I’ve been working hard with my head down, covering for some out-of-town coworkers, but I wanted to take a minute to recommend a product that I use on at least a weekly basis called Splunk.
This week I’ve been working on trying to find a new way for our company to manage the hundreds of PDF files that we provide on our website to our customers. Our current method of keeping track of and displaying these forms is through a series of pages with drop-down lists, each referencing a specific lookup of a MS Access database.
As I’m setting up my company’s new Exchange 2007 server, one of my desires is to create a simple records management policy that will delete all of the email older than 6 months from our users’ mailboxes. The reason for this is because we use an email archival system that stores our email for long-term retrieval inside of a SQL database.
