Slow to retrieve Free/Busy information

Hello,

Recently we've been having some issues with users having to wait up to 5 minutes, before users availabilities are displayed, while attempting to schedule meetings.  We are running Exchange 2003 SP2 on Windows 2003 server SP1.  All clients are using Outlook 2003.

Any idea what may be causing this?

Thanks in advance.

Outlook publishes free/busy information every so often. This can be configured in the Outlook client.

The only free/busy I've found is the number of months to publish the info.  Where can I configure the frequency of updates?

Tools>>Options
Click on the Calendar Options button.
Click on the Free/Busy Options.... button.
You should see the following:
Update free/busy information on the server every _____ minutes.

I've changed this setting on the client machine, but there doesn't appear to be much of an improvement.  Some clients display these delays, but most run as intended.  This issue only crept up a few weeks ago and we have not made any changes to the server for quite some time.  Can you think of anything which could be causing this from the server side?

Thanks in advance.

I accepted the answer, even though this didn't resolve my issue.  Mysteriously enough, the problem worked it's way out on its own.  Thanks for the prompt response.
