Outlook 2010 slow to open the first attachment of the session

Hi!

I have one client machine with a rather strange problem. When they open Outlook 2010, the first attachment they try to open always takes around 2 minutes to load. After that, all attachments open immediately.

This affects all file types - PDFs, XLS, DOC, JPG etc all tested so far.

Windows 7 x64.

Other people with this issue seem to blame "DDE" but unfortunately there doesn't appear to be anywhere to configure this on Windows 7, only in XP.

Any ideas please?

Thanks,
James

I fixed it by deleting all references to an old file share from the registry.
