A good communication tool.As the amount of data grows, so is the amount of backup and recovery times.Administrators are then forced to impose quota for mailbox.Users on the other hand want to keep absolutely everything regardless of its size.If both administrator and users are then forced to spend excessive time to simply manage their data, Exchange becomes a burden rather than a productive tool.
