We are presently running MS Outlook 2003 SP3 on SBS 2003 SP2. On several of the work stations, users have constantly complained of Outlook running slow or making the station "freeze. I have made sure that Auto-Archive runs every 2 weeks automatically and none of the accounts are over 1 GB. The "inbox" usually holds no more then 300-400 messages and I encourage users to move mail into other folders to trim the Inbox size.
1) Is there any tips or utilities for getting a smoother, faster Outlook experience.?
2) Is there a decent alternative that does most of the functions that Outlook does for a small business?
