Managing large mailbox on small capacity tablets

There is a paradoxical situation. If you use Office 365, you get a 50 GB large mailbox. At the same time, we are using portable and mobile laptops and tablets (Windows tablets like Surface Pro). These have very little storage – typically 0.5 to 1 TB. We are used to storing the entire mailbox on PC for offline usage convenience for decades. What is the solution?

Just store the recent  mails on the tablets. Outlook offers a nice and simple configuration option in File – Account Settings – Offline Settings. Reduce the offline storage of mail to ONE month (or whatever is convenient). That’s it.

large mailbox : offline use

For mail which is not stored locally, you can always use Outlook Web Access. It is more powerful than ever before now. Amazing feature set!
