When my computer "wakes up" from either sleep or hibernation, Outlook won't immediately be able to check for new mail. I press F9, the send/receive details opens up, but it's stuck for at least a minute or so, before it actually starts to do anything (the application is not frozen, it's just that it's not downloading or sending email right away). The internet is of course available immediately and I can do other network activities normally, right away. What could be the reason for Outlook's delay?

I don't think you can speed it up - Outlook needs time for Extended mapi to wake up, detect the connection and kick in. (Extended MAPI is the reason Outlook is slower downloading mail than OE/Mail or t-bird too.)

Aw, snap. :( OK, I've gotten used to doing other stuff before checking my email, as the first thing after hibernation, guess that won't change. :) On a side note, is the Extended MAPI also the reason why 2007 is slower than 2000 with downloading (and afterwards displaying) email? I remember Outlook 2000 would display new messages in Inbox almost instantly (while downloading), whereas 2007 has a noticeable delay.
