Shared Calendar Syncing between Outlook 2007 clients on Exchange 2007

Hello all,

A client of mine has a SBS 2003 R2 server running Exchange 2003.  The clients are a mix of Outlook 2003 and 2007, some on Vista, some on XP.

The Reception desk schedules appts for several people in the office.  To accomplish this we have Shared the Calendars of each user.  
This was all working perfectly until about 2 weeks ago.  One of the 5 users in the office using Outlook 2007 on Vista has r e a l l y slow syncing with the Reception computer.  Nothing has changed other than MS Updates.  I really don't know where to look. Its very intermittant.  Emails sync immediately.  Happens on wired or wireless on the client end.  Anyone point me in a direction to look?

Thanks,
-John

First try this: Close Outlook, click Start->Run, type Outlook /cleanprofile
If that doesn't do the trick then recreate the Outlook profile. Profile corruption is the source of many strange behaviours in Outlook.
You may first want to save away the address cache (the .nk2 file) which contains the addresses the user has prevoiusly sent successfully. You find the .nk2 file here (XP):
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
(Vista: C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook)
If you do not know how to recreate a profile: http://www.howto-outlook.com/faq/newprofile.htm
After recreating the profile you can restore the .nk2 file to the same location assuming you used the same name for the new Outlook profile.
