Outlook 2003 / Outlook Professional 2002 "Emits Loud Constant Beep Out of PC Speaker When Recieving Email."
Posted on 2003-11-18
I recently upgraded from Outlook Professional to Outlook 2003.
When Retrieving My Email "Send/Recieve" Application, Keyboard and mouse lock up completely. PC Speaker emits a loud continous beep for appx 30 seconds. As soon as the Beep stops after 30 seconds or so the email is retrieved and everything goes back to function normally.
This happens sporadically and does not seem to have a rhyme or reason. It happened with Outlook Professional as Mentioned and still does with 2003. It happens with or without any addons. Currently I have the Backup addon for Outlook 2003 and SpamBully Bayesian Anti Spam Filter. It still occured without the filter installed.
