Hi malhaar,

When does this happen? When you open Outlook or when you're working in outlook? It might happen when you copy large items to the clipboard and try to paste them in Outlook.

Do you reboot or go to standby when not using your laptop.
Try a good reboot to refresh the memory.

Run the task manager (press CTRL ALT DEL and select taskmgr).  Sort my memory used in the task list and see what is using all the memory.

Check you have enough swap memory.  Right click on my computer / properties / advanced / performance / settings / virtual memory.

Check for spyware with something like SpyBot Search and Destroy :

Are you running Outlook in cached mode? If so, untick cached mode and try to send and receive again.

Let me know if this helps.

Hello malhaar,

1. Check if Outlook is in Offline mode. In Outlook go to File and make sure Work Offline is not selected.

2. Register an important send/receive library file.  Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 inetcomm.dll

3. Check if antivirus email check is slowing sending and receiving.  Disable it. Check if other programs running in the background is interfering. Disable one at a time the Firewall, antispyware, antispam, and all Norton programs.

4. In the account settings, Advanced settings, change the server timeout time from 1 min to 5 min

5. Check if outgoing mail server authentication is required. Select that option in account settings and use same settings as incoming server

6. Your ISP may be blocking port 25. Try using alternate port 587.

If no joy, you need to use your ISP SMTP server to send out emails.

7. Create a new Outlook profile.

8.  Check with email provider Tech Support to determine if server is having trouble.

Hope this helps!

What are you sending / receiving.  
Look in your outbox.  Anything bigger than 1 MB ?
Do you have webmail to see the incoming items before they arrive at your pc ?
If so check that.  Anything bigger than 1 MB.

If there are very big attachments delete them (if possible) and retry.
