Hi!

In our department we run Outlook 2000 and use a exchange server. Now, in irregular intervals, on some workstations Outlook doesn't reacts after starting for app. 4 mins. It's only Outlook, all other applications are fine. Usually I solved the problem with deleting the exchange server in the settings and re-added it, but this isn't working anymore. Does anybody knows about this problem or how to solve it? Do you need more info?

Greetings,

su-n

well, i installed all service packs for w2k as well as for the whole office pack. unfortunately that does not fix the error. the strange thing is, that it happens only ón a few workstations, not everyone is affected...

Commented:
Virus scan?  Spyware scan?  Scandisk?  defrag?
Have you tried anything I suggested?

anything but scandisk. i'll try it next shift!

Commented:
It sounds like Scandisk was tried, fixed the problem, and the asker never returned.

Well, I must admit that I forgot this post. Finally I solved the problem by myself.
Problem was, that in the user profiles was an old novell profile, but we changed to exchange some months ago. Looks like the nolvell profile messed up something.
Deleting novell *and* exchange profile, reboot and adding only the exchange profile finally solved it.

Thanks so far,
