How many users can be added to the single user mailbox for Mailbox Automapping keeping Performance in mind RRS feed

Answers

  • You can add more than 32 if you bump up the value limit via the registry. The performance hit doesn't just come from the number of mailboxes you open but the size of the mailbox and it's associated item count. The performance hit would usually come from the default limit of 11 cached views. With 2010 it's more tolerable to the item count. But again I can't really say what the recommendation is. What are you using this mailbox for and how many people do you expect or wish to grant access to?

    Its not by mailboxes, its by session. Multiple sessions are used when opening mailboxes that are typically less then the actual number of mailboxes accessed. The session limit is enforced at both the mailbox and CAS level by the throttling policy in Exchange 2010.

    Note also that you can cache shared mailboxes which can mitigate the performace impact on the server side, but increased the size of the user's mailbox cache on the local workstation.

  • No one can give you "recommended" number it depends on a number of factors. Yes the default session limit is 32, however it depends on mailbox size, item count and what actions\activities are performed on the mailbox and performance of your server.
