I am using Outlook 2002.  Whenever I send a message Outlook locks up for about 20 seconds.  I also have Norton Anit Virus 2002 installed.  Any ideas on what's causing this problem?

Greetings, hamburger99!
   The anti-virus program is checking your out going mail for virus. Disable the AV, and see what happens.

Best wishes, war1

I should have stated that this problem does not always happen.  It seems like it is a random, but frequently occurance.  I have not been able to determine if it is a function of the message specifics (size of message, number of addresses, etc.) or some other issue.   Therefore, I have not tried disabling AV.  I would have to operate without it for a couple of days to determine whether it was causing a problem.
