I have a single user that is having issues with his Outlook. When he tries to create a new email or respond to an existing email Outlook is painfully slow to open the new email. His pst file is about 800 Mb and has been compacted. Thanks.

That version of Outlook defaults to having Instant Messaging enabled and is a known cause of slowness in that version (per Microsoft). Go to Outlook -> Tools -> Options and click on the Other tab. Clear the box for Enable Instant Messaging. In other words disable Instant Messaging. Outlook should speed up after that.
