OS is Win XP SERVICE PACK 2, Outlook 2000 SR-1.  Printing to network HP4.  When printing an Outlook message it
takes minutes to get to the printer. nothing else will run while waiting minutes
for the printer to print.

The printer will print from Word or Excel within seconds.

    Accepted Solution

    does it eventually print?
    have you check the network print queue assuming you are sharing the printer thru a server?

    try adding the printer to their pc using simple TCP/IP as a local port to the HP printer, it works very well with HP laserjets and therefore bypasses any server queues and is queued by the printer itself.

    Also check the default settings such as paper type and paper size

    the most likely reason for the delay is to do with outlook accessing the mailbox the server is busy or the link is slow
