Installed Office 2013 on Windows 7 box.   Word and Excel open really fast.  Outlook takes about 3 minutes.  It sits there, saying Processing.      Once I get in, it runs ok, but why is it so very very slow.   I also have it loaded on a Windows 7 laptop and its almost instantaneous that it opens.   Also, the send/receive doesn't work unless I click it and tell it to send/receive.   Then it will pull my email.   I have it set to check every 3 minutes.   I just tested with laptop and did a test message.   After 3 minutes it came in on the laptop...  I am still waiting on it on the PC.   (I have messages set to leave on server so I can test)

This is the Microsoft Recommend solution.

########################
1) Start Outlook in safe mode following the below mentioned steps:

* Hold Windows key + R.
* Copy and paste, or type the following command in the Open box, and then press Enter:
Outlook /safe

Note: There is space between Outlook and /

If Outlook safe works, disable the add-ins following steps mentioned below and determine the problem causing add-in:

a) Click on File menu, click Options, Add-ins, Go button besides Manage: Com-in Add.
b) Check if there are add-ins listed, clear the checkbox.
c) Close the Office program and restart it.
d) Disable each add-in one at a time, restart the Outlook, and repeat the above procedure. If the issue reappears again, it will help you to determine which add-in is causing this issue.

2) If issue still occurs, create a new profile and add a Non-Exchange server email account and verify whether issue re-occurs.

Refer to the following article for instructions on how to create new profile:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/create-an-outlook-profile-HA102749460.aspx?CTT=1

3) If issue doesn't re-occur, add the Exchange server email account in new profile and check if Outlook works correctly as expected.

Ok....Just to clarify.     We do not have an exchange server.  Our email is provided by a third party.

Create a new profile?   I can do that...but this is a brand new install.    Just today.

Agree.....but even if it a new install you might have some add ons that came with the new environment by default. Add-ons are usually the issue for slow performing Outlook issues. Bad news is that is a PITA to do the add-on process of elimination drill.

Discovered the add in that is causing the problem.   Now I am working with the vendor to see what's up.   We use a secure email service  and it is an add in that they provide.

Thanks

Disable and Stop the 'Desktop Window Manager Session Manager' service.  It's a pile and breaks Outlook 2013 frequently.

Will it cause me other issues by disabling it?   I am on Windows 7 and not using Aero
