Outlook 2007 is Crawling - Viewing Pane is Very Slow too!
Posted on 2009-05-17
Outlook 2007 is Crawling - The viewing pane takes longer to see the HTML eMails - I even tried to disable Business Contact Manager but it still shows up after disabling. I even get closing errors when I know I closed it properly! I can say this; My old Outlook Express is 1000% faster but I need the features from Outlook 2007. When I click on an eMail, the Bottom Reading Pane takes a while to open and prevents me from scrolling fro one to another until the first one opens completely. Disabling the reading pane is not helpful because I often need to see what it is about.
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to speed up my Outlook 2007 - Maybe there are things I can disable or remove or add? (how about Biz Contact Mgr?) What do I do? Uninstall it? Is it needed for contacts or any other function? How about deleting tool-bars? I only have a few of the ones that come with Outlook. Maybe my Configuration settings need to be re-set? I am frankly frustrated....
By the way, I use 50 addresses for various employees and businesses that it checks daily. I always move those eMails to the proper sub-folders (which are about 30 besides the Inbox, Drafts, etc) but the folder selection box is tiny and it's hard to see the subfolders - can that be enlarged for easier viewing?
If I have too many questions in this inquiry, please tell me. However, if I can get answers from people for the ones they feel good about and not answer the others, that's OK with me... Other answers may cover the ones that were missed... I submit to your authority. If there answers to one or more questions I'll be happy with whatever I can get. Or I can break this into three questions... your pick.
Anything to help this work properly will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks to all of you!
