at work there are several people in the admin office that were updated from winXP - office 2007 to win7 - office 2010
Their old pc's were intel duo's with 2gb or 4gb of ram. all of them have 2 or more .pst files that are in their personal network share, and they say they didn't have any performance problems in outlook
they were upgraded to intel i5 processors with 4gb of ram, and they all are saying that outlook 2010 is slower.
so the network is the same, they have 2 or more .pst file - some of which are pretty large but in xp with office 2007 they didn't have any problems. Now with newer better pc's and 2010 outlook they are slower? I tried the connection status thing in outlook and it seems like the connection isn't slow. I also tried the performance monitor but it didn't seem bad either. I even tried disabling indexing out of desperation because i was guessing that outlook might be disk intensive but that didn't help
lastly, i tried running outlook in safe mode - but again, no help there.
I was told that our exchange server is 2003, so i thought maybe that is the problem, but unfortunately, I have no access to it, so I can't run any performance things on it.
Is there some other way to check if the source of the slowness is the exchange server?
