Have you checked for latest office updates / service packs as well as Windows updates?

Are you able to use webmail to send w/o issues?  Can you try clearing out your OLK folder / temp IE files as well?  

Try disabling addins in Outlook by running Outlook /safe from start > run and see if issues persist.

Apart from above, you must also check if you AV is doing some scanning process. That might also slow down the process. Also use cached mode, so Outlook doesn't need to sync again and again with the server. Cached mode might help to resolve it.

Sorry should have added more information. diabled Addins. uninstalled AV. Recreated Windows User Account. Cached mode kills bandwidth... so not cache mode

Ok then goto more settings in the Email Account setting from control panel, click on general tab and increase the timeout value to 120 seconds. Test the result again.

Last option, to reinstall the Office again. Corruption in outlook could be the reason also, and i highly suggest to use cache mode. It is one time task only, when it creates the OST. You can do it in office lan and then use it. Again, it comes down the connection speed between client and server. Before you do anything futher. Run below command and check the results.

outlook /rpcdiag
