Very long time to connect to the Exchange server.

The client shows event ID 26 connection to microsoft exchange hass been lost ,  connection to microsoft exchange hass been restored ( 8 time in 10 minutes).

Very long time to do any operatio as open address book, send mail.

No other users complians.

No errors appeared in the Exchange server ( MS exchange 2003 Standard SP2 on Win server 2003 standard)

Kindly advice

Try to do all updates to Exchange server.
