Microsoft Outlook locking up

P: 4
I have used Microsoft Outlook for 2 years with no problems. However, in the last few weeks it keeps locking up. I can send messages, but whenever I hit the send/receive button, the hourglass comes on and it just sits there. It locks up the whole computer and I have to turn it off. (I do delete cookies, temp files, and do defrag on a regular basis.) I keep the deleted folder emptied, but I do have alot of emails stored in Outlook.

Can you help??

Fortunately I can check email through the web link, but I really want my Outlook back.

Any help is appreciated.

I was having similar problems with my computer, my outlook was locking up my pc, almost anything i did locked it up and i would get the "Program Not Responding" message and that would freeze too. I had to whip out my whole PC do to file corruption and viruses.

Maybe try and delete some of your e-mails or re-install the Office Suite if you can.

I compressed and deleted lots of emails.
It will let me send emails, but not receive.

Is there anything else to try? Not sure I know how to remove just outlook and then put it back on
