Microsoft Outlook 2002 is taking a very long time to download email.  When I highlight a message, I think it is f rozen but after about 20 seconds it starts to respond.   Until recently it had a quick response.  What did I change in my system that may  have caused this?  I'd surely appreciate help.

I really think this is something only you can answer, unles you post a recent complete system log so we can view it!

I'm not too sure if that was the cause of this problem, it is very likely... but still. I don't think I deserve these points.
