PC Adm: .CAL and .MMF Files Not Counted in Storage Status

Article ID: 103446

Article Last Modified on 10/30/2006



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Mail for PC Networks 3.0
  • Microsoft Mail for PC Networks 3.2



This article was previously published under Q103446

SYMPTOMS

In versions 3.0 and 3.2 of Microsoft Mail for PC Networks, the ADMIN.EXE program's Local-Admin, Storage, Status command returns the amount of disk space used by the Microsoft Mail for PC Networks, MS-DOS, and Macintosh workstation users only. Mail Message Files (.MMF files) stored on the postoffice by users of Microsoft Mail for Windows are not counted, nor are Microsoft Schedule+ for Windows calendar (.CAL) files.

The Mail version 3.2 "Administrator's Guide" is misleading regarding this topic--the bottom of page 108 implies that if the .MMF and .CAL files are stored on the postoffice, they will be included. However, even if the .MMF and .CAL files are on the postoffice, they still are not counted.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in versions 3.0 and 3.2 of Microsoft Mail for PC Networks. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

MORE INFORMATION

To calculate an accurate count of all client and Schedule+ files:

  1. From the Admin program, select the Local-Admin, Storage, Status command and record the Total Space Used amount.
  2. Quit the Admin program.
  3. At the MS-DOS prompt, switch to the drive containing the postoffice database.
  4. Change to the MMF directory.
  5. Type DIR and record the amount.
  6. Change to the CAL directory.
  7. Type DIR and record the amount.
  8. Add the three amounts.
