Outlook Very Slow to Open old emails
Posted on 2015-02-06
I have a network with a Small Business Server 2003 (new server spending), Windows 7 Pro PCs 64bit with 8Gb RAM. Office 2010
Everything has been running fine but suddenly 2 PCs are struggling to open any emails that are not todays. The error is Outlook is trying to retrieve data form Exchange.........
I have tried switching on Cached Mode but it never finishes creating the .ost file and new emails are not delivered. It was left to run over night.
I have reindexed and disable Windows search. I have uninstalled the anti-virus and tried and its the same. Everything else on the PC like opening files, browsing the internet is fine.
The user has 7.5k email in their inbox but a different user who is having no problems has 35k.
There is plenty of space on the Server and the PC.
Outlook has the latest updates.
If todays emails are opening they are absolutley fine.
