outlook 2007 and 2010 very slow to send emails under Windows Vista and Windows 7

I have a laptop running windows 7 and MSO 2010 and using a VODACOM 3g card to pop off emails. Internet access is fast and working perfectly. The only problem is when sending emails, emails immediately gets sent to outbox and hangs for 2 minutes before sending to relevant email address.

This laptop is not part of a domain and has never been connected to exchange server. However the user does have an existing exchange mail box in exchange server.

I also have identical symptoms on 2 laptops that are in the domain with exchange accounts as well as pop accounts.

open outlook, go to Tools from the top menu and then Trust Center ,Click on Add-ins in the left hand menu and then click on the Go button at the very bottom of the dialog where it says Manage and has a drop down box .Now you’ll get a list of add-ins that you can uncheck. It is suggest that you un-check ALL of the add-ins except for the Windows Indexing.

Good Morning,
Does this particular user have the same problem when using a different computer?  Have you tried re-creating the Mail profile?
