I have the following situation:

Windows Live Mail 2011 with 3 POP3 accounts.
I can download and open e-mails.
If i try to forward or reply a message the program hangs and i should wait about 40 seconds to
be able to see the forward screen.
During this time i see in task manager that wlmail process is using 50% of cpu.

I tried disabling antivirus module (nod32) with no success.

Are you forwarding attachments or inline pictures?  Or is it just plain text?

If it is just plain text, it might be an issue with the outgoing port, in which case try a default outgoing mail server, for example, for Optimum Online subscribers,  or on for Verizon Fios

You misunderstood me.I don't have problem sending mail to any recipient with or without attachment.
The problem is that when i open a mail and then try to press "forward" or "reply" button it takes about 1 minute
to open the next window.After it opens i can send mail correctly.
