Question : How to have a Stable Microsoft Outlook profile with 4-5GB+ data w/  MS Exchange Mail server ?

I wanted to know as how the network admins would handle the outlook profiles which are 4 to 5+ GB data in it.

We have the following setup:

Customer 1:

Running an SBS 2003 with Exchange 2003

Customer 2:

Running an SBS 2008 with Exchange 2007

Both the customers are independent and they are standalone.

I have seen several instances that the computers whose outlook profiles are configured with the local MS exchange server have some thing or the other issues coming up once a month or more.   The users who are having issues will be either SALES or OTHERS users who have thousands of emails on there outlook and whose mail box size might be 4-5GB+.

These users might have several folders in there inbox as well.

I have some questions:

1. Are there any limitations in the outlook(2003/2007) profile size when the configured with
    Exchange 2003/2007  ?

2.  Is there a doc or link which will tell us the best practices as how users can keep the outlook emails   organized so they don't get corrupt or have any other issues ?

3.  I am sure that its not just me but several network admins would have faced this issue
    with outlook profiles (especially the SALES users outlook or other corporate users who have been in the company for several years )

4. Are there any specific settings and tweaks I need to configure in the local outlook for users, which will  stabilize the connections and email setup ?

5. Does it depend on the way as how outlook is configured with exchange ? LOCAL,POP3,IMAP ?    which is the more Stable ?

Office applications are expected to run interactively, so there are a number of problems automating Office from IIS or from other non-interactive environments.  See this kb article for details and workarounds.

Mail merge can also be done more generically as HTML or RTF using simple string manipulation or with XSL transformations.
