I just started using Outlook 2010 (set it up for my Gmail account), and it's really slow. Even simple operations like flagging a mail or moving it to a folder is taking at least 3-4 seconds.

Please let me know what the problem could be.

I don't think I chose any of them. Just stuck to defaults.

its probably setup for pop or imap.  how much email do you have.  your .pst file might be huge! or it could be a slow computer

if you have a lot of emails look at how big ur pst or ost file is
xp replace user profile for your profile
C:\Documents and Settings\User Profile\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\

windows vista/7
C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook
