Karl,

A few questions:

1.) What is it that you need from MAPI that IMAP doesn’t provide? Would a hybrid approach work?
2.) What is the underlying mailbox format that you are using? Don't forget that all of the normal pros and cons for mbox, mdir, etc still apply to MAPI, too.

Tom

>> I don't have answers for you. What I do have is Australia's extremely slow internet and remote sites. Our policy is to have clients set up with MAPI, to also have PST files. Once an email is actioned, it must be moved to the PST file. Inbox (and subfolders), Sent Items and Trash/Deleted Items have to be kept to an absolute minimum. Otherwise the wait is painful. If the client requires certain emails to be shared with others or access via a device, a separate folder under the root (same level as Inbox but not a subfolder) can be created and email moved to it. Due to lack of constant syncing with this folder, the slow down is not experienced.
