It's great to see you create Channel 9 videos. This was very useful.
> EDIT: Man you guys did a lot of CYA (Cover your Rear) on the privacy stuff....that got me thinking....
Privacy is very important to people. Our goal is to:
a) Get the design right because respecting people's privacy is big priority at Microsoft.
b) Be transparent about the details. The privacy advocates are wonderful. They provide a service by verifying claims in order for the community to be able to have trust in the product.
Each email folder is a different file system folder. The file system folder would only have 200,000 .eml files if all of those messages were in one folder. We don't expect users to navigate to the store folder, unless they want to backup or restore their mail database.
Users will primarily use the mail UI or the shell search UI. The shell search UI does expect to have to scale to a large number of files.
My name is Bryan Starbuck and I'm the development lead for Windows Mail in Windows Vista. (aka Outlook Express)
I didn't go in much detail in the video. I will be going into much more detail in my blog.
