Outlook clients very slow & stop responding
Posted on 2004-04-13
I am experiencing a problem with Outlook clients, using Microsoft Exchange Server (SBS2000 & Outlook XP / 2000 clients).
Outlook regularly runs very slowly and often hangs. I think it seems to be down to a problem communicating with the Exchange server as we often get the message "...Outllook is trying to retrieve information from ExchangeServer..."
To give you some background information, we have recently installed a 2wire broadband router onto our network, and also a second network card into the Exchange server for VPN access - The problem seems to have occurred, or at least got worse since we did this.
We have tryed various different DNS settings on client and server to no avail, so unless anyone has any specific instructions, we don't think it is to do with that.
We really are quite baffled and running out of ideas, so would be most grateful for any suggestions.
Both the clients and the server should be up to date with windows updates etc.
