I have a email user whos email syncs a couple times a day. The problem is when it syncs the computer slows way down.
I am guessing this has something to do with it as well. He has a 9 gb PST file and I have no idea how to break it down if that is the cause. I have since set up new pst files (4)  for his archives.
Are these problems related and how do I fix it?

Hello, 9 gigs is really too big, especially for a laptop or not so recent PC, you should split it by creating more pst files and archive the whole mailbox by date starting from the oldest mails.
For example if you have a mailbox containing e-mails of 2008, 2009, 2010, you should archive all the folders until 31 december 2008 in a 2008.pst file and so on.

let us know, cheers.
