Yes, that's what i mean.
If you want to keep it clean and synced with a number devices Exchange Server 2007 or later will do the job.
Migrating all to the iCloud which may be quite a job.
From your end you should make sure:
you do not have Exchange 2003 which is not longer supported by Apple latest OS.
Sort out the iPhone and iPad to connect to the Exchange
The try Mail again or invest in Outlook 2011 for Mac which would handle your large Exchange account better.
I'm not supposed to recommend non-Apple products here but I believe this is a good option to make it work.
Hi. I am using Exchange 2007. the iPhone and iPad are set up on the Exchange. I have Outlook but prefer Mail b/c I use a program that allows me to set reminders from email and it interacts with iCal and sends me reminders. Outlook doesn't have that.
Still not sure what you're recommending I do (sorry!). Create subfolders just within the inbox and sent box?
Yet mail is not syncing between my devices (iPhone and iPad),
I think i misread the one above.
Let's start over.
The first thing I would recommend is to go to Mail Mailbox on the top menu bar and Rebuild.
This may take some time if this is a large email box.
If that does not help you should remove and re-add the Exchange account. Tis again will takea long time to download your emails from the Exchange - depending on yopur internet connection.
Third step would be to archive some emails & folders.
Since the Exchange 2007 does not have the Archive store for users you may ask (administrator) for another exchange email account with archive extension John_Archive@ and move some emails there.
You can have two Exchange accounts on iPhone, iPad and your Mac.
Let me know if you have further questions.
