Exchange 2003 & Outlook 2003 timeout issues

We currently have an Exchange 2003 email environment with clients running Outlook 2003.  We are having issues where users are complaining that the Outlook Client hangs for between 10-30 seconds every 2 or 3 minutes.

After the 30 seconds outlook performs as it should.

We have run a series of network speed tests that haven't highlighted any network performance issues and we have fully patched the client (app, Os, Network drivers).  This happens across a range of hardware manufactors

Has anyone experienced similar issues and know is there a fix or is this just a "quirk" of a Exchange/Outlook environment?
