UTSA employee e-mail limits raised to 100MB

(Aug. 26, 2003)--Tired of trying to decide which important e-mail message to keep and which one to delete? Does the thought of maxing out your mailbox keep you up at night? Help is here!

In response to many requests, the UTSA Office of Information Technology (OIT) has increased the capacity of Outlook Exchange mailboxes for UTSA employees from 25 MB to 100 MB.

With advances in technology and connectivity, sending large pictures, research papers and digital images has become commonplace, and the 25 MB limit proved to be too small. This summer OIT began bringing newer, larger Exchange mailbox servers online.

Last weekend, the last of the new mail servers became operational, and as of Aug. 26 the new mailbox size limits are implemented. Note that you will receive a warning when your mailbox size reaches 95MB.

Does this mean you should keep every e-mail message and not worry about deleting old messages? In a word, no. OIT would like to remind you to continue to practice good mailbox housekeeping habits by deleting unneeded messages and saving mission-critical items to personal folders.

For more information or assistance in setting up a personal folder, contact the OIT Help Desk at 210-458-5538.
