First of all hi to everyone! this is my first post on the forum and lets hope is not the last

This will be a litte hard to explain given english is not my native language but i'll try my best (sorry if something gets miss-writen!)

I'm the Sys Admin of a Law Firm and we want to implement remote access for everybody, so whenever anybody want they can work from home. To do that i think that the best is to use access via Terminal Server because everybody works at home with Windows and that our entire server platform in Windows Based.

We will be using a mixture of roaming profiles, folder redirection, and mailboxes hosted on the server, so when you connect to TS, the server just have to load a few files and you can get your whole session with *everything* just like you where seated on your computer (i hope you are getting it!).

The part where KMS comes in hand is where everybodys mailbox will be hosted on the server using IMAP. Sounds simple but my concern is that several mailboxes weight about 7 Gigs (8 years of emails), and i dont know how good will be the performance of KMS with that!

A few pointers:

-The mail client will be Microsoft Outlook
-The core of our network is Gigabit (the servers switch), and the clients work a 100 Mbps.
-We have about 70 Users (will be 100 in a couple of years)

Does any of you guys worked with huge mailboxes on KMS in "online" mode over a 100Mbps LAN?

Any feedback will be really apreciated Wink

If you already have the switch at 1GB your next upgrade should be GB nics--it makes a HUGE difference, especially with sync roaming profiles. On the KMS side, well if you are doing TS then yes get those nics replaced, 70 x $10, well you do the math Wink

have fun
