I recently had some computer problems which led me to basically strip my computer and reinstall everything, including Windows XP and Outlook Express.
Now I have a problem I’ve never encountered before: Outlook Express takes forever to load. I just timed it, and from clicking on the icon to being useable took just over 2 minutes. When I send/receive mail while in OE, it only takes a few seconds, so clearly that’s not the problem. I’m thinking it’s doing some sort of archiving or security check every time it starts, but I’ll be damned if I can figure out what it is.
I’ve gotten all of the required updates and service packs, and temporarily disabled my anti-virus program, before anyone suggests that as a possible solution.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
