This is a new deployed MS Exchange 2010 server in 2008 r2 AD Domain. Only a few users are using it. Recently, these users found that mail sending/receiver through their MS outlook appears quite slow, some said they create folder, and it takes a quite for the folder to appear. Does the exchange missing some thing? How about patches? What patches must be in place?

    make sure the software is up to date to, you should have the latest service pack which is sp1.  I would also check other hardware devices on the network

    When you say send and receive is slow/sluggish from Outlook, it has to do something with RPCClientAccessService on the CAS server.

    Restart the RPCClientAccessService on the CAS servers. That will improve the performance.

    With respect to the Accessing of public folders, it uses the RPCClientAccessService on the mailbox server.

    Latest service pack and roll ups have resolved the issue on the CAS server as Madhatter5501 says.
