I am at a conference in Prague this week. As is usual, I cleaned up my Exchange InBox, before I left on Friday night. By Monday, the InBox had exceeded the 50 Mbyte size limit set by our IT department. It’s now totally locked.
Now I have wireless access in Prague and I can run Outlook Web Access using the Firefox web browser. But due to the fact that I have some useful rules in Outlook to file certain messages into specific folders, I can’t actually remove any of the large files that have been moved into sub-folders within my InBox.
You can on IE, but Microsoft’s browser does not run on a Linux machine. So thanks Microsoft. I’m now basically stuck. What’s the point in Outlook Web Access if it does not work on any browser. Surely it’s more important for your revenue stream to maintain access to Exchange server than lock-out non Microsoft browser software. This is a ludicrous situation, given browser-based access is supposed to be platform independent. This browser lock-in does not help users.
I have been using GMAIL instead.
