Outlook 2007 super slow

P: n/a
Hi,
Has anyone worked out a way of speeding this up? I spent over £4000 on
licences for my company and installed it first on my laptop only to find it
super slow during send/receive and then to learn from all the posts on the
web that it is a known and very common issue so i can't roll it out (with
Office 2007). I cannot believe MS released it with this problem.
We use pop3 which might be the problem but we aren't going to change because
MS can't write their software correctly.
After much discussion with MS (I have a support case ongoing) they still
can't work it out - they claimed initially it wasn't Outlook but after
pointing them to this site and others they have backed down on that. Further,
they keep telling me to try things but nothing works - these things are
usually things already written on the web anyway of which nobody has said
have worked.
Help please!!
Thanks

Hi Henning,

Thanks for this. Coincidentally the MS Support team gave me this at about
the same time you did.

I've installed it and Outlook seems to run faster (such as deleting and
switching between folders) BUT it doesn't appear to have made a difference to
the send/receive issue as it is still taking an age to receive emails (around
30 secs for 3 emails @ 40.4kb).

MS Support also pointed me to:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935569

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/B...tCriteria=date

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932086

None of which appear relevant to the issue that I and (it seems many) others
are having.

I'd appreciate any advice on this.

Cheers
