Desktop Search Engines Can Affect Exchange Server Performance

I was glad to see that we have a KB article stating this.? (Very well written, Nino…)? It is a very lo-o-o-ng title:? "Exchange 2000 Server and Exchange Server 2003 performance may be affected when desktop search engine software is running on Outlook or other MAPI client computers"

The article does a good job of explaining under what circumstances you will see the issue.? This is yet another good reason to run Outlook in cached mode in your organization.? Also included is a link to the ExMon tool to identify who?are the culprits.?

I use the MSN search tool?exclusively now and love it.? But I also know that I am running in cached mode, so I know that I am not causing any issues with my Exchange servers.? Excellent.
