More MS Exchange stupidity

So not only does it slow down the entire octo-core Xeon machine to unusability, it's just dumb. Mired in 1995 feature. Can I set two alarms for an event? No! What would be the possible use of having an alarm the night before to remind me that I have a 7:30 am meeting? And also have an alarm 5 minutes before to remind me to call in?

And I also can't change the alarm time. If I get invited to a meeting, I can't change the alert to be 5 minutes, or 1 minute, beforehand. No, the host decides that for everyone. Never mind that he's a 15 minute walk away, and I'm a 1 minute walk away. Everyone gets the same choice, which is to say, none.

Yay. I'm so glad that our current CIO came from MS and, surprise surprise, chose the MS infrastructure to chain everyone else to.

Don't even get me started on the stupidity of “vaulting” email.
