I have Outlook 2003 running under Windows XP. Whenever I go to send a message with an attachment that is usually under 5MB, outlook takes quite a long time to send the message.

All of the Windows updates have been applied. The virus protection is Avast Home Edition and SpyBot S&D is also installed.

Any suggestions to speed up my Outlook 2003 will be greatly appreciated!
