Does including entire text of emails bog down the system badly?

We have 5 licenses and 3 sales guys adding info daily to 7,000 contact database.  We're considering making the email history default to save text of message (but not attachments) instead of just the subject line.  Standard messages from email templates that we know what they say and are long we intend change the option when we send them and just do the Subject LIne.

 

It'll help sales team communication but I am concerned it will blow up the file to huge...bog down syncs and cause other probs I can't anticipate.  Anyone had any experience with this?

 

We have mostly new computers so RAM, storage, etc. not a prob.

 

Thanks in advance.

Text is usually not an issue, even very large amounts of text only account for very small amounts of actual space in memory.

Although it is very dull when you've saved your signature in every email.

Well put on the signatures.  Just noticed that on an email I sent and deleted it. EXCELLENT point. Bit of a PITA to do that but why waste the space no matter how little it is.

I think (and I haven't got my act together to check it) that if you do a pretty image based signature the problem doesn't arise.

Very sneaky...and smart. I'll check that out as soon as I can.
