Why PSTs are Such a Bad Idea in the Cloud
PSTs – Personal Storage Tables – arrived in the days of 25 mb mailboxes and 3 kb emails. But now that most Exchange mailboxes are in the cloud, isn’t it time to drop this antiquated technology?
Short answer – yes. With today’s larger mailboxes, expandable Exchange Online archives, and network and cloud capabilities, there’s no reason to store email in PSTs.
