Hi all, is there any keen outlook users out there, my question is why does it take up to 15 minutes to sent and receive mail?? Operating system XP.
Cheers Jon

15 minutes for a single txt message sounds odd...never seen such a delay in a program.

You arent using HTML mail, that sometimes locks up the machine?

Have you run Office Update?

There may be a patch to fix it....

I had similar problem with Outlook (although not 15 minutes) plus other strange things as well. Emails would take forever to send. I thought that the problem was with NAV which was scanning in and out mail. But disabling made no difference.
In the end I simply went to >Help | Detect & Repair (Outlook XP) and that fixed it.

How many emails are you sending/receiving on average? What kind of internet connection do you have? Are you sending/receiving through the ISP you are connected to? Do you have a firewall running? If so, which one? Are you connected directly to the internet, or through a network?
