There has been another labrat sighting - check out this nifty tip from his blog - you are reading his blog, right? Um, here are the results from one customer engagement with the services labs (labrat territory): "After the 3 week lab engagement, the end results were significant.  Retalix, Ltd. achieved the following scalability improvements for each application tested:

  • Increased the scalability of Retalix's future POS application in the number of simultaneous users supported by over 500%
  • Increased the scalability of Retalix's ReMA application in the number of simultaneous users supported by 300%."

Get it? So here's his tip:

On your taskbar, you'll notice an Outlook 2003 icon.  If you click on it, you'll see options for you to turn on or off such as "Show network warnings" and the like.

However, if you hold down the CTRL key while clicking on that icon, you'll notice a new option, "Connection Status".  Selecting that option will show you all kinds of useful information about your connection to your Exchange Server(s).
