Hi, Can someone explain why Outlook freezes temporarily when i receive multiple smaller or single (or multiple) larger emails) - I can do nothing with it until it's finished transmitting including can't go into diary/contacts anything - Keep trying and it tells me 'Outlook is not responding' - Why does this apparent weakness and can I get around it somehow? - thanks -

Which mail account type are you using?
Have you applied Service Pack 2 and additional updates for Office 2007 already?

Do you have a virus scanner installed which integrates itself with Outlook? Uninstall this integration part of your virus scanner and try again; you'd still be sufficiently protected by your on-access scanner part of the virus scanner. For more details see;
