Slow Outlook 2007
Since I have installed Outlook 2007, the one obvious thing aside from the User Experience changes is how slow the damn thing has become. It's slow to start - unbelievable- disable all add-ins aside from search, and it's too bad that one is so darn useful, because it does slow things down at startup. For the Send and Receive speed - one you've made sure RSS update is not part of the send-receive. If you want a good summary of things to try out see the roundtrip post. For me it seems that the upgrade process may have corrupted a small data file called "extend.dat" and it turns out could have slowed things down, the jury is still out. There is also the patch for large pst that you can find on MS knowledge base.
