Outlook "To" button lag

Posted on 2013-06-28
Last Modified: 2014-02-06
I have several users that are experiencing a really bad lag when they click on the "To" button in an email. It can take up to 2 minutes for the global address list to pop up. We're running exchange 2010 and it happens on all versions of outlook. Any help would be appreciated.

Use Outlook with Cache mode. So it can fetch information from OAB rather going to GAL directly. OAB downloaded under local user machine so access is fast.

I've tried that. It only fixed it for a little while.

Safe mode can't be a permanent solution though

Is it working in safe mode? If yes, then you need to focus on plug-ins and remove them one by one and check which one fixes it.
