NUS LargeMail!

Category : NUS

Meant to mention this but its been a whirlwind recently. On 20 Oct 2006, NUS LargeMail finally came my way - Ladybug had bragged about it at least a week earlier!

Dear Colleague

We are pleased to inform that your mailbox size has been increased to 10 GB! You should hardly notice any changes except the introduction of a new icon for less frequently accessed emails which will be stored in the secondary storage. The secondary storage is lower in cost with negligible performance difference compared to the primary storage. You will continue to work in the usual manner with your favorite NUSmail.

We believe LargeMail will serve you better in the years to come for your work, interaction with colleagues, students, collaborators and friends.

More information on LargeMail is available at

Yours sincerely,

NUS Postmaster
Computer Centre

Nice to see them all happy about it!

This was timely, as I contemplate switching to Mail. With IMAP, it'll be painless and with all that secondary storage, NUS servers could hold as much as three years of my mail for me. How lovely!

Right now, on Entourage archives, I have mail dating back to 1998. It still comes in useful, for contacts and sometimes a salvage project plan has its uses! Unfortunately, the pre-'98 mail got acidentally erased when I shifted computers in my old lab.
