Outlook 2003 - Delay saving attachments local or network drive

I have one user on XP SP2 when in outlook trying to save a document to a network drive (and sometimes local) that she has a delay up to 10 minutes before the drive will appear.  Then when it appears getting to subfolder most of time is quick, other times delay.

This is nothing to do with outlook or attachments.
In fact if you open my computer for the first time you will experience the same.
You probably have network drives mapped from different subnets, or slow responding servers. Or DFS shares. There may also be network drive mappings that are not reachable. Same goes for network printers, they will also slow down your query for files when doing a windows common dialog access (file browse prompt).
Disconnect the mapped drives and see if the issue goes away.
10 minutes is unheard of, but i have seen a minute or so delay.
