The past week every time I try to open an email I get a message box saying

"contacting server for information". I can not cancel or close the box until

it is done. It happens mainly with emails that contain graphics. I am using

a PC and do not have a separate server. I have never had this problem until

the last few days. Any ideas as to where my problems is would be greatly

appreciated.

thanks, Rob

It is hard to say what is going on without knowing any configuration

details.

At the very least include your version of Outlook, the mail account type

that you are using and where the dialog appears (pop-up, new dialog,

tooltip, etc...).

I'm getting same error message lately :"contacting serve for information" box pops up (& freeze any further Outlook activity for 15-30 seconds) when ever this particular email is highlighted in the preview pane.




This started few weeks ago and wonder if this is an Office update issue. Have tried searching on Microsoft Help and nothing!!!




I've searched Microsoft and no solutions. cntrl-shft-F9 doesnt' work i I only have 1 account i log into.

Which version of Outlook are you using?

Which mail account type are you using?

Is this only happening for one specific message or for every message that

you receive?
