And if you do fall prey to the malware, iMore has that will help you scrub your system clean. More than anything, Dok serves as a reminder that you can't assume you're safe just because you use a non-standard platform. However, the rogue code also appears to rely on a faked certificate that bypasses Apple's screening, giving it carte blanche if you're not careful. Outlook for mac docusign spam account. You're not going to get a Dok infection just by opening a message, thankfully. It might be easy to avoid, but it's potentially very damaging if it gets through and you don't look for warning signs.

October 5, 2012 Has your Exchange-based Outlook mail client performance gotten slower over time? For example, is Outlook Search getting slower? Or do you often get a message saying something like “Requesting data from Microsoft Exchange Server” that is slow to clear before you see your mail update? If so, you may have a problem that most people are not aware of: you may have reached Exchange’s single-folder item count limit.

The good news is, if you have exceeded that limit, it can be fixed fairly easily as I discuss below, and your speed should come back. What is this Limit? Exchange’s single-folder item count limit is different from Exchange’s mailbox storage limit. You might still have lots of space, but if you have too many e-mail items in one folder, the slow-down will occur.

That’s because it’s based only on item count, not size, and that count is not that hard to reach well before you run out of mailbox storage space. The fix is simple: spread your mail across more folders or subfolders; or archive or delete your mail off the server. More on how to do that smartly, below.

Note this is a problem only on older Exchange servers—Microsoft has mostly fixed this on the newest ones. But also note that even though you may have a newer version of Outlook, the Exchange Server version your company runs behind your Outlook is invisible to you, and it could be quite old and so still subject to this issue. Many IT departments are slow to upgrade their server software, so check with your IT department to confirm the version (more on which versions are effected below). Before I explain more details on how this limit works, how to identify it, and specific strategies to fix it, let me first give you some background on why 1MTD or MYN users should be particularly aware of this. Why 1MTD and MYN Users Should Know This As you may know, my primary recommendation in for filing mail is to file all saved Outlook e-mail into one folder called the Processed Mail folder. Nearly all my books and classes discuss the huge benefits of doing this, so I won’t repeat the reasons here (for more online information about how I use the Processed Mail folder, see this ).


But obviously that single-folder filing approach could make you more prone to reaching the Exchange single-folder item count limit (again, if using an old Exchange server); any one folder loaded with lots of items, like the Processed Mail folder, can cause the problem. It’s a bit ironic that a filing best-practice that will make you more productive could lead to a technical server issue. And even if you are not using the Processed Mail folder approach, but perhaps you are storing lots of old mail in your Inbox, then you could still be impacted by this issue; the Inbox is subject to the same limits. What are the Limits? How Old a Server? Are you likely to hit this? How many items are too many for a single folder?
