Bandwith

By kemp13 ·
Our users have been using "stationary" from Outlook 98 as background in email. Is this a big bandwidth hog ? We have branch offices connect by routers to the server out of the main office, WAN. Would having persons go to plain white background on email composition help at all ??

"Stationary" does make the emails bigger, which means that they will take longer to transfer. That means that any one of these larger emails is "on the wire" longer than its plain text only equivalent. Will going to a plain format "help"? Maybe, butit also depends on if these same users are also embedding binary attachments (like Powerpoint or WordPerfect or Word or...). Then you have to try to figure out what the % difference is: likely very little if you're moving attachments.

Using backgrounds in Outlook might make the emails a little bit bigger, but It wouldn't be enough to worry about. Personally, I think a plain white background would look more professional, and it might save a little bandwidth too.
