Outlook is trying to retrieve data from the Exchange Server . . . .
Posted on 2006-07-07
I have seen numerous questions and commentary on this message showing up in Outlook, but I have seen no clear cut response or solution. Two years ago, we upgraded to Outlook 2003 and Exchange 2000 and have a constant issue with slow response to opening email, deleting email and generally using Outlook which creates an exclamation point over the Outlook Icon in the tray, and shows the message, Outlook is trying to retrieve data.
We have a dedicated Exchange Server with 2 gigs of memory serviing less than 15 users. Does anyone know what the underlying problem is with these types of connectivity issues. Many times, Outlook shows a white screen and the desktop is non responsive.
Your thoughts would be appreciated. My IT people have tried to fix this for the past two years to no avail.
