Managing Your Mailbox Size In Office365 Exchange Email (using archive)

Background I’ve been using Microsoft exchange for many many years hosted through different exchange hosted providers.  For the last year or so I’ve been using Microsoft’s Office365 solution.  At this point, I’ve got over 10Gig of email which means that every time I set up outlook on a new computer it’s a long wait until all the email gets downloaded (ost file bloat).

How To Setup Exchange with the Samsung Epic 4G / Android 2.2

Normally, setting up Microsoft Exchange Server with a mobile phone is pretty straight forward.  I just got the Samsung Epic 4G today (see my earlier post here:  ( ) and setting up Exchange was a little confusing.  I use GoDaddy’s Exchange Servers (hence the, but the field Domain\Username through me for a loop.  After some experiment, I just tried putting my email in there and, to my surprise, it worked.  I don’t get why there is a leading backslash or the title Domain\Username but since my email is now working, I thought I’d share.   … Continue Reading
