Just noticed that many of my Outlook XP machines (using Windows XP with SP2) are really slow in sending and receiving messages.  I checked all the normal settings which are:

Exchange Server 2003
In the options, I have the email set to send immediately when connected and then to 1 minute to do an automatic send.

I can logon with the same users to a machine that has Outlook 2003 and the messages disappear immediately.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Dale

Greetings, dgore1 !
>>then to 1 minute to do an automatic send.

This is too often to poll a email service.  Send server may not have time to recover. Set it to 5, 10, or 15 minutes.

See if virus checking of email is slowing the send. Disable virus check.

Check if Exchange Mode cache is slowing the send. Disalbe Exchange mode cache.

Check if using MS Word as editor is slowing send. Disable MS Word as editor under Mail Format options.

Best wishes!
