Outlook 2003 - Blocked

Hi all,

I have since few days an issue with my outlook (2003) when I am trying to send an e-mail it blocks for few minutes, all outlook is down and I cannot do anything. After few minutes it unblock an d I can use Outlook normally UNTIL I go back in the body of my e-mail who blocked... I cannot find any coincidence with e-amils... but sometimes it works and sometime I loose many hours with this problem.

THX for your help.
Regards

First thing I would try is disabling any Antivirus software you may have on the machine.  Try to send a message after it's disabled and see if you still have the issue.  It's possible that the Antivirus software is scanning the emails as they are going out and locking the system up.  

You can also try running a repair on the Outlook from the add/remove programs found in the control panel and see if that helps resolve the issue.

:-) sure I tried but that's good idea. I deactivated the anti-virus (totally) and also do repair of office... last thing is to remove office and reinstall it but that not a real solution...
