MS Outlook slow

I get this message now that says "Contacting the server for information" that is slowing down my reading of mail on Outlook 2007.  How do I turn that off

The anti-virus software may be scanning your messages which in turn could be causing the slowness. Try going into the anti-virus settings and disabling the email scanning function and see if that speeds things up for you.

You can try to view messages as plain text and see if that helps.

I don't have Exchange, I just use Outlook 2007 as my email client

I should have asked, what mails do you access?

I'm sorry but I don't understand that question.  I have four different email accounts that I access through Microsoft Outlook.  Today instead of just clicking on the email and seeing what it says in the preview window it hessitates and sometimes I get a message saying "contacting the server for information".  Now I do know that the ISP this machine is hooked up to is having some issues today but I have not experienced this before.  

Testing the internet connection I am really fast on downloading but uploading is at a crawl...not sure if that helps or not

Hi,
See, it all boils down to your connectivity at the end of the day. I would be keen on checking that, any changes to the PC recently
Thanks

Well yes, I just installed the ISP's version of anti-virus software.  Not a problem until today though
