Connections through VPN are often slow because VPN uses the slow side of a standard DSL type network connection.

If you have Auto Discover set up (and you probably do), try running Outlook without connecting to VPN. It should still work.

John,

Thanks for the response,yes outlook is working fine without VPN infact with good perfomance,we are using VPN for some services not for outlook anywhere,during this time when users connect outlook its very slow.

My question is ,can we do something to improve outlook perfomance when connected through VPN?

Our clients just avoid VPN for Outlook.

Outlook will not work any faster than any other file open or transfer over VPN. In fact, it could be slower because Outlook retrieval and syncing of the OST file means a lot of data back and forth (more than many simple transfers). We found the same issues and just avoid it.
