Requesting data from Microsoft Exchange....

Greetings,

The following is not an error, but is constantly showing up on our workstations using Office XP/XP Pro.

Titled: Requesting data from Microsoft Exchange...

Outlook is retrieving data from the Microsoft Exchange Server "NAME". You can cancel the request or minimize this message to the Windows taskbar until Outlook closes the message automatically.

(There is a small check box labeled "Always minimize this message when a delay occurs")

-------------

I am personally running W2KPRO with Office 2000. I don't ever have any problems. It appears to only be users running Office XP. The users who are running XP Office complain all the time that this message is popping up and it delays them from doing other tasks.

One last note: Any of the XP users who have synchronizing of offline folders turned on also have this delay (similar message, but for file sync). None of the 2000 users have this problem.

I'm thinking along the lines of time out, but could there be a configuration problem with the local application or is it a server side issue??

Thanks in advance,

Patrick

Yes, what spakko said it a good idea. You should make sure, than no "on access" virus scanner scanns the exchange database as well as the M:\drive

The virus scanner was already avoding those directories and files, but I like your suggestion. I'm going to split the points.
