Why would emails open slowly in Outlook 2007?

I realize Office 2007 has nearly as many problems as Vista, however we still have it running on one machine in the office.  We've managed to work out most the problems with it, however Outlook 2007 is still opening up emails rather slowly.  We're connecting to an Exchange 2003 server for our email.  It's a fresh install of Office 2007 running on a new install of Windows XP on a new Dell Optiplex system.

So far, we've disabled RSS feeds, disabled pretty much all the Outlook addins, and uninstalled BCM.  We've downloaded and installed all the updates Microsoft has available for Office 2007.  Doing those things did help, however there is still a very noticeable delay when opening an email in Outlook 2007.  Any suggestions on what else might be the culprit?

Do you have Dell Media Direct running?  There have been reports of it conflicting with Outlook 2007.

Is your virus scanning slowing this pc?  What virus software do you use?

Also, try disabling Windows Desktop Search - maybe the indexing is slowing things?

Dell Media Direct is not installed.

We're using McAfee VirusScan Enterprise, but I don't think that's the problem.  At least, it doesn't cause problems on any of our other machines, which all run Outlook 2003.  If there's a conflict between Outlook 2007 and VirusScan, it's Outlook 2007 that has the problem, and likely would have to go.  We aren't going to switch our company wide virus protection over it.

I'll check and see if disabling Windows Desktop Search helps... and if it does, I'll have to see if disabling it is an acceptable solution.
