Outlook not deliverying email - solution known, but how to implement?!

Our LAN with Outlook email has recently become quite slow at delivering email. Clicking on another folder in Outlook (like Calendar) usually refreshes the inbox (F5 does not in this case). Apparently it's to do with the LAT table not set up correctly, to point to the file server. Now, I've heard of one of these, but where on earth do I find it on our server? Small Business Administrator console somewhere presumably? Win2k server by the way.

Thanks

    The LAT Table is the Local Address Table and is used by MS ISA Server and other firewalls/routers to work out which subnets are internal and which are external. Thus, the table becomes the basis upon which the firewall and routing functions route and block traffic between your network and another network (usually the internet).

    I would be surprised if the LAT table is the cause of your problem, but its configuration is part of ISA - if that's what you're using.

    Does pressing F9 help you at all, instead of F5??

    Cheers

    I can't find it now, but Googling yesterday I found a problem page with the same symptoms and configuring the LAT was the solution. Pressing F9 works but is not really a long term solution, thanks anyway. If you can point me to configuring the LAT I'd appreciate it.

    BTW, yes we're using ISA server. Any ideas how to configure that LAT on that?

    Thanks

    F9 accepted as a partial-solution, hence the B grade. Thanks, Geoff M.
