Synchronizing subscribed folders

I have two mailboxes in Outlook 2010.  One for my in-house exchange server, and one for a Gmail account.  When I do send/receive in either email box, it takes about 10 seconds to process “synchronizing subscribed folders”.  

Is there a way to speed that up?

1. Have less subscribed folders
2. Have less messages in your subscribed folders.

You could also try turning off cached exchange mode
This should speed up the process quite a bit for you

I would also check that you have the latest Office 2010 SP installed

The reason I chose C for this answer is because the ideas offered we some I already considered.  I solved this problem myself by changing my IMAP Gmail account to a POP3 with the Gmail emails going to the same inbox as my Exchange server email.  Thanks!
