Try starting Outlook in Safemode first of all. (Hold Control just after clicking Outlook)

Let me know the results,

Found it, it is the outlook connector we use for MDaemon Email Server. Further investigation found that it is the 'Show Progress' bar that is causing the problem.

By unticking the "Show progress indicator when loading messages" in the config resolves the problem.

Thanks for getting me on the right track.
