My Outlook keeps freezing when I send emails. It seems to work fine for about 5 mins after I open Outlook but after that it will freeze as soon as I hit Send. Closing Outlook and reopening it is the only way to fix it. Does anyone know what could be causing this and how to fix it?

I have tried:
Recreating the Mail Profile
Reinstalling Vista and Outlook

My Setup:
Outlook 2007
Vista Home Premium
Exchange Email

Couple of thoughts:

1) Check the antivirus email check to see if it is slowing send/receive, and if so disable it. Check if any other programs are slowing things down (anti-spyware, firewalls, etc.) and disable them.

2) You may need to register/re-register the send/recieve library file. To do this
Start > Run and type regsvr32 inetcomm.dll

Let us know if neither of these help/

Thanks Opytk!

However, I think I figured it out. I recreated the profile again and this time it solved the issue. I'm not sure why that didn't work the first time.
