it takes 4-5 minutes for outlook express to open and we can not find the reason, can you please help with ideas

I am working with outlook express for years, never happened before. Now even after we changed the motherboard, switched to pentium 4 and formatted the whole thing, and reinstalled windows 98 and office 97, the problem persists.

First question - which version of OE?
If 5.5 or greater, have you tried a Repair (start-Settings-Control Panel-Add/Remove-IE-Repair)?
If below 5.5 you should upgrade to that.
Here are some articles that may help.

My first question juditka is this happening to only one person if so do they have a lot of email if so start having them delete unwanted email start by emptying the ‘Deleted Items’ folder.  I am not sure in Outlook Express if you can archive I know that you can if you are on Microsoft Outlook.
