Outlook 2003 Status Hangs "preparing outlook for the first time"

Outlook 2003 linked to exchange and it hangs on setting up outlook in cached mode. Its works ok if i turn off cached mode but i share this mailbox out so i need it to work on cached mode.

Any ideas ?

this beacuse of the mailbox size , i think it's large size mailbox so you think it's a hang but it's a delay try to create the profile again and give some time and be ssure that's enough space on the c: drive

how big is the mailbox, what speed is the connection between server and client?
and how long did you wait before declared it hanging?

HI i have checked size remaining and there more that enough for mailbox and i have left it overnight and the progress bar does not move.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Can you first create the account without cached mode, and then you turn it on afterwards.
See if that makes a difference
