Hi all

Sorry for the cross posting here in advance..

I 've run Windows XP & Outlook 2007 & BCM 2007 on a good computer and
found that it ran horribly opposite a 32 bit Small business Server
2003. I have an email inbox data file that has been very very big
( which I have since shrunk to 700 megabytes.) I get a lot of email
every day.

I've also seen a copy of Vista 64bit Outlook 2007 & BCM run flawlessly
with a 2.2 gig mailbox file

Here's my question, if I upgrade to Vista 64 bit with Outlook & BCM
can I run that against a 32 bit SBS server for both the Outlook /
Exchange elements and also can I have SQL express in 32 bit work with
the 64bit version of the software I am running on the client
workstations?

What is the best solution (without going crazy) I'd really like to run
Outlook 2007 & BCM with the data file on the SBS server..

Thanks for everyone's input.

Are you using the Exchange mailbox or a pst file?

Outlook running on x64 Vista can connect with any mailbox running on any
server - including unix and linux - and SBS2003 32bit.

Outlook/Exchange people say it's the number of emails that matters, not
so much the total mailbox size. The 2.2G mailbox you saw might have
contained 1000 emails, while yours contains 10,000. Exchange stores
emails in a relational database, and it's an indexing issue. It does
help to use a folder hierarchy, as the number of items per folder is an
issue as well as the total number.
