It doesn't help that said organisations often also dictate that people only
use Outlook or Lotus Notes for email. Neither tool is powerful enough to
efficiently process large quantities of mail. This isn't exactly surprising,
given that they're glorified electronic diaries with email bolted on as a
means of sending meeting invites.

A decent mail client such as [insert pet MUA here] is much more effective at
processing hundreds or thousands of messages a day with ease.
