Microsoft Exchange mailbox
We have a mailbox that is used by one of our departments that has a lot of folders and saved emails. I have allowed 4 users to view this large mailbox from within their own mailbox. When they open their mailboxes it generates an event id 9646. I understand that there are to many objects and I can change the registry to allow more objects and eliminate this error message. The MS article led me to belive that by doing this it could have adverse effects on the operation of our exchange server. What are my options? Archiving the large mailbox is out. Can I make that mailbox a public folder and avoid generating this event id? Is there more underlying issues happening that I am not aware of? Thanks for any help!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You could split the mailbox.

You could export the mailbox to a *.pst and have it included in each user’s personal folder (a little scripting necessary).

You could even do a batch process of rendering all the e-mails in that large inbox as an internal webpage on the server, so that users could access it that way.

Hope this helps!
