I have a single user here on our Exchange 2007 - Outlook 2003 network who has a problem that is getting more pronounced as time goes on.  

When he composes an email, then hits the SEND button, the button remains highlighted and Outlook 2003 "freezes" for several seconds to over a minute while processing the mail item, then finally seems to get past whatever the issue is and closes the message window and returns him like normal tot he Inbox or wherever he was originally.

This wasn't happening before, and no other user on the network is having this issue.  I haven't been able to find much on the internet about "message send delays" in Outlook 2003, so I'm hoping you guys have some ideas on what the deal might be.

Thanks in advance!
