Both. We get emails from vendors that contain large (sometimes 30 or
40MB) PDFs, and they send them to 5 or 50 of our employees. The
employees then will email them back and forth, or send them to different
people outside the company, sometimes many times.
I spent a few hours doing a random audit of someones mail store (with
them sitting there with me), and found cases where the same 40MB
attachment existed 20 or more times, most of them in the Sent folder,
but often with copies in different client folders.
Our users are dumb...
