Steps to try

1) Disable AV and see if problem stops. MS suggests this, but if I was stuck using MS mail clients, this would scare the crap out of me.

2) Switch client to use a sngle DNS server in TCP/IP properties (Outlook and Express sometimes have trouble when mltiple DNS servers are listed in TCP/IP config)
