Find a way to upgrade the system somehow, and tell them that PSTs are unable to
work properly with the new system.

It's the truth, sort of...

I have read all those things about PST=BAD and I have used all of those.
I gave my suggestion of do not allow any PSTs and I was told that we
have to allow PSTs. The reasons is the best part of the whole thing,
"they have always been able to use PSTs so we can't take that away from
them". Politics is the problem.

The more I'm thinking about this the madder it makes me. I've given this
recommendation before and then this time I was asked to give the
recommendation again so it could be taking to the powers that be. I give
my recommendation and I'm told it is not acceptable. I'm pretty much
being given the recommandation and being told that it is my
recommendation now justify it. I can't justify the wrong decision.

So that was my rant that you all could care less about but thank you
everyone for the input.

Have you gone through the FAQ on why PST=BAD?  If you have an Exchange
Server and you don't restrict people's mailboxes to a ridiculous size,
there
is absolutely no reason for you to use PSTs.  Offline users can work off
of
their OSTs.  Why is not possible to get rid of them?  What is their
argument?  They want to have a safe virus-scanner-free place to store
their
games and exes?  They prefer to utilize more disk space?  They want to
provide job security to low level admins who try to recover corrupt
PSTs?
They are comfortable NOT backing up PSTs for users that don't logoff
from
Outlook?  What is their rationale?

After much complaining about PST usage on our network I have finally
been
asked to give my recommendation on PST files. My recommendation of not
allowing them at all was shot down as not possible. I now turn to you
guys
to find out what you do about PST usage.

I would like to limit the size of the PST files that we use but the only
way
I know of that I can do this is based on quotas on the drives where they
are
stored. The only other way to enforce this would be to monitor it and
yell
at the people that get large PSTs.

I think I'm running into what I have read many times on this list and I
will
probably get it wrong. "There is no technological solution to a
behavioral
problem"
